Saffron, tarragon and orange help to flavor this delightful asparagus dish.
This recipe was sent to me by a woman who received it from relatives in England. The crunchy sugar topping is a delicate treat. My daughter Danielle asks me to make this dessert year-round (it's her favorite recipe in my cookbook) but I like to wait until the berries are in season.
The combination of creamy avocado with the crunch of crisp beets and the snap of green beans is a real palate pleaser. The colors are as startling and varied as the tastes. Key to this easy-to-prepare salad is avoiding overcooking the beets; they should still be crunchy. Cook in salty water until your fork just pierces them and the skin is easy to remove.
This light and refreshing salad contains 90% of your daily recommended intake of Vitamin C in just one serving.
