Asparagus and lemon – a match made in heaven

Everything for your spring salad à la Vista

Crisp asparagus spears, the fresh scent of lemon, and the best olive oil – your taste of Ticino in springtime is ready.

Today we’re sharing something that you’ll absolutely love – the recipe for the Vista spring salad, which you can easily make at home.

First, wash and peel 500 grams of green asparagus, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Next, grill the asparagus in a pan for about five minutes. In the meantime, mix a teaspoon of honey, the juice and zest of an organic lemon, two tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, and a chopped garlic clove, as well as two tablespoons of olive oil. Season to taste with fleur de sel and fresh pepper. Remove the grilled asparagus from the heat and pour the vinaigrette over it. Finish with a scattering of toasted pine nuts and shaved Parmesan. Last step: enjoy! And since we’re on the subject of enjoyment:

To delight both your eyes and your taste buds, treat your palate to a little culinary stop in one of the Vista restaurants. Directly on the shore of Lake Maggiore, you’ll experience not only a wonderful view of the deep-blue lake, but also a culinary journey through the delicacies of Ticino and Switzerland, as well as international classics that are too good to resist. Find your table and your happy place in al Pontile, the gourmet Ascona restaurant that locals adore, and let yourself be carried away into the tastes of spring.
