Canned white asparagus from Navarra is so revered in Spain that it has its own D.O. (a protected denomination of origin). This simple, composed salad is a lovely way to showcase its buttery flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a blender, puree the coarsely chopped tomato with the lemon juice, mustard and sugar. Add the mayonnaise and the 3 tablespoons of olive oil and blend the dressing until thick. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 2    

In a large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the green beans until tender, 4 minutes. Drain and let cool to room temperature, then drizzle the beans lightly with olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper.

Step 3    

Arrange the beans, tomato wedges, onion and asparagus on a platter. Drizzle the dressing over the vegetables and serve.

Make Ahead

The dressing can be refrigerated overnight. Serve lightly chilled or at room temperature.
