Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 6

2 Pound(s) Asparagus
1 Tablespoon(s) Olive oil
2 Shallots, chopped
3 Cloves garlic, chopped
1 Tablespoon(s) Mixed chopped fresh herbs
such as basil
rosemary and
1/4 Cup(s) Red wine
1/4 Cup(s) Balsamic vinegar
Cracked black pepper
1/2 Pound(s) Mesclun mix or mixed wild
12 Ounce(s) Soft mild goat cheese
1/2 Cup(s) Toasted unseasoned bread
Prepare a large ice water bath. Bring a large stockpot of water to a
boil over high heat. Add the asparagus and blanch, about 4 minutes, or
until al dente, then transfer to an ice water bath. When cool, drain
the asparagus and set aside. To prepare the dressing, heat the olive
oil in a saute pan over high heat until very hot. Add the shallots and
garlic and lightly saute, just until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the
herbs and saute until the herbs are fragrant, then add the red wine
and transfer to a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil, until
the dressing is emulsified and thickened. Season to taste with salt
and pepper and set aside. To prepare the salad, distribute the greens
and asparagus among 6 individual plates and drizzle the warm dressing
over the top. Sprinkle the goat cheese and bread crumbs over the top
and serve. Converted by MC_Buster. Per serving: 264 Calories (kcal);
