Salad of roasted asparagus, mozzarella di bufala and watercress

The last few days have been very greedy around here. A debauchery of chocolate or strawberry cakes.
Now it’s time to get back to healthier recipes. But not for all that less greedy! I like the idea of ​​starting the week with a delicious salad. And this has been my favorite salad of the past few weeks. So quickly, it is absolutely necessary to do it before the asparagus season ends.

The peculiarity of this salad is that the asparagus is roasted in the oven. It’s a simple and very tasty way to cook them. All you have to do is put the rest of the ingredients on top and enjoy.

Finally: it’s time to prepare salamoia bolognese. It is simply a salt flavored with sage and rosemary. I use it all year round since I discovered it in Italy.
Failing that, season with salt and pepper and add a few sprigs of rosemary which will add flavor during cooking.
