  • Salad Spinner
  • BBQ or heavy based grill pan


  • 250 grams asparagus (approximately 2 small bunches)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 4 tbsps Olive oil (2 tbsps for the asparagus & 2 tbsps for the walnuts)
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary
  • 90 grams mixed lettuce leaves (3 cups)
  • 100 grams ash goats cheese
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2-3 tbsps Chardonnay vinegar


  • Preheat your barbecue or char-grill pan to high heat.
  • Put the chopped walnuts in a frypan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and gently fry until golden brown, then add the chopped rosemary, toss until fragrant. Transfer to a cold plate and allow to cool.

  • Char-grill the asparagus on a hot barbecue or in a char-grill pan until charred and tender (Approximately 3-4 minutes).
