I always look forward to see asparagus on the market. Then I know spring is coming. My favourite are those thin, green ones. They are perfect even raw, only with few drop of olive and a pinch of salt…

Who doesn’t love them? Could be a better definition of spring? They are simply delicious, so for the first few times I eat them just raw or blanched. But they go along with so many ingredients, that it would be a shame not to mix them into some dish. Like pizza with asparagus and cherry tomatoes. I made a white base and I seasoned it with dried mint and a blend of spices I brought from Georgia, called Adjika salt (you can replace it with some hot paprika). So simple, fresh and yet, comforting.
