This recipe is adapted from my favorite DR. Oetker vegetable cookbook "Gemuese Mal So Mal So".

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 125 g cooked ham, sliced and cut into strips
  • 1 (250 g) can sliced mushrooms
  • 1 (250 g) jar asparagus, cut into pieces
  • 250 g frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 12 teaspoon sugar


  1. Place vegetables and ham into a bowl.
  2. Combine the oil/lemon juice, salt and sugar in a jar with tight fitting lid and shake until you have a somewhat thick sauce.
  3. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  4. Pour over peas mixture and toss.
  5. Let stand for 1/2 hour before serving.
  6. Note: You can use fresh cooked peas/asparagus and lightly sauted mushrooms instead of the jarred/canned.

This salad is custom made for a hot summer days. Very quick and easy. Made using black forest ham from the deli and add a handful of diced onion that was already in the frig. Would like to try this with lightly blanched fresh asparagus when it comes in season. Thanks for the post.

A lovely and quick light dinner for a summer evening. I did add some diced red onion with olive oil, seasoned salt and no sweetening. I had fresh mushrooms and used those cooked lightly. :D

My oldest son really loved this. I found it a little plain myself -- like it needed some onion or herbs. It was a good way to stretch the expensive asparagus (I used briefly-cooked, fresh asparagus), without covering up the flavor. I used it as a cold meal for a hot day and it was very nice though the serving size is a little optimistic for that purpose.
