  • the prep

    • 1. Bring a small pot of water to a boil and prepare an ice bath. Blanch the asparagus until just bright green; this should take less than 1 minute. Immediately remove with tongs, or drain in a colander and transfer to ice bath to stop the cooking process. Dry on paper towels and slice into threes on a bias.

      2. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, oil, lemon zest, salt & pepper.

      3. Assemble salad by tossing together asparagus, peas, greens, and mint. Lay burrata on top of salad and drizzle with vinaigrette. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
