It’s Spring: time for salads! You will love this variety with asparagus, fresh apple, soft goats cheese and delicious balsamic cream combined with the bite that spelt grains add… Perfect for a lovely lunch or dinner after a day outside! And it’s done in no time too.
Usually I spend half of my weekends at my parents place and the other half in our apartment with the boyfriend. This weekend however I was a bit tired of having to be somewhere else all the time, so I decided to stay in Breda. All by myself! I’m not that good at being alone, so this was a bit of a challenge.
To be honest: it went so much better than I expected. I actually had a lot of fun! I was in a really good mood and the sun was shining… And then I was baking a cake and walking around on the local Saturday market looking for great vegetables, and meeting my friend for a coffee at this cute little place. I haven’t been alone (at least not with positive experiences) for so long, so I’m really happy everything worked out!
Asparagus/apple/spelt/goats cheese salad
Mmmkay, so this recipe is actually really easy. I originally had something completely different in mind: I wanted apple cider vinegar and feta cheese. Then I realised that I could cook whatever I wanted since I was alone anyway: Yay! The boyfriend doesn’t like goats cheese while I love it, so this was the perfect excuse to use it in a recipe again.
If you don’t have or don’t like spelt grains don’t worry: couscous or quinoa would be lovely as well.
