Purple Asparagus Salad with Orange and Tarragon
Imagine this as a lunchean or brunch. Maybe with eggs or poached chicken. You can use green asparagus in the flavorful salad, but aren’t these purple specimens spectacular?
And I couldnâ€™t be more pleased! Because this busy Sunday is full of the things I love.
I love tomatoes! I am going to spend some more time today at the Los Angeles Garden Show handing out recipe cards from our TomatoMania contest. Itâ€™s such a privilege to be representing all the great bloggers, cooks and gardeners who participated. I canâ€™t wait to get back out there.
I love my friends and I love cooking and entertaining with them. We have a very good friend visiting from New York so we have a casual early Sunday Supper planned.
Then there is what I love most about Sundays. There is the Hollywood Farmers Market and the weekly post I call Market Matters! The market was extra fun this morning because we got to take our houseguest down there with us. Itâ€™s like seeing the market through new eyes for me. It really helps me appreciate what a great asset the Farmers Market really is in my life.
And thanks to my new set of eyes I found something extra special today. I have thick â€œjumboâ€ purple asparagus. They are not around very long each spring. Blink and you miss them! So the extra set of eyes was much appreciated!
