This recipe is adapted from my favorite DR. Oetker vegetable cookbook "Gemuese Mal So Mal So".
- Place vegetables and ham into a bowl.
- Combine the oil/lemon juice, salt and sugar in a jar with tight fitting lid and shake until you have a somewhat thick sauce.
- Taste and adjust seasonings.
- Pour over peas mixture and toss.
- Let stand for 1/2 hour before serving.
- 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.
