This is the perfect summer salad made quickly with seasonal produce: white asparagus, raspberries and arugula. Homemade raspberry vinegar, vegetable broth, maple syrup, argan oil, and tarragon make up this delicious dressing inspired by 1 Salad - 50 Dressings - Tanja Dusy. Fresh raspberries give this raspberry-tarragon vinaigrette a burst of antioxidants.

  • 125 g Raspberries
  • 125 ml Vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp Raspberry vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp Organic argan oil
  • 2 stalk Tarragon sprigs, chopped
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • 500 g White asparagus, trimmed and peeled
  • A handful of arugula
  • Raspberries for garnish
  1. Rinse and pat dry the raspberries. Place them in the blender together with vegetable broth, vinegar, maple syrup and argan oil. Puree until smooth.
  2. Wash the tarragon sprigs and pat dry. Finely slice the tarragon leaves and stir into the dressing. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside for 30 minutes to allow the flavours to develop.
  3. In a large, deep skillet, add enough salted water to reach a depth of 2 inches. Bring it to a boil. Add in white asparagus and cook until crisp-tender, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water and let stand until chilled. Drain and pat dry. Arrange the asparagus, arugula and raspberries in a serving dish, drizzle with raspberry dressing.

This looks amazing! I see white asparagus at the farmer's market from time to time, but I've never actually tried it!

The red on white is stunning! We don't see too many white asparagus here but I hear theyre pretty common in Germnay, right? Our season is coming to an end, very little asparagus left in the shops now. But I can see this dressing on other vegetables, so gorgeous!

Wonderful! In Northern Italy we have a large production of white asparagus. They have a more subtle delicate flavour, I love them and love your sauce too. A very nice presentation Angie.

Susan 17/6/15 19:56

I grew asparagus when we lived in Connecticut and one season created white by covering them. They taste the same, but my family was suspicious! The raspberry/tarragon dressing looks divine and a must try on summer salads!

Every time I see white asparagus I laugh and cringe. Once it was a theme for a challenge and I just could not find any. Once the challenge was passed they were everywhere and year round now. The raspberry-tarragon vinaigrette looks amazing.
