Ingredients

1 cup (250 mL) shredded Canadian Medium Cheddar
12 medium asparagus*
2 cups (500 mL) sliced mushrooms (white, portobello, oyster, etc.)
1/3 cup (80 mL) olive oil
4 cherry tomatoes, halved
Juice of half a lemon
1/3 cup (80 mL) water
Salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation

Peel the asparagus, blanch them for 3 minutes in salted water, then plunge them in ice water to cool. Drain and set aside.

In a bowl, mix together the oil, water, lemon juice, salt and pepper and toss with the mushrooms and the cherry tomatoes. Set aside.

Moisten the asparagus with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill them, taking care to let them develop charred lines from the grill. Place the asparagus on a small baking sheet and cover with finely grated cheese. Place the sheet on the barbecue grill and close the cover for 1 to 2 minutes.

Place the mushroom salad and the grilled asparagus on a service platter.

Tips

*Try placing a few lettuce leaves under the mushrooms. Sprinkle with the marinade and quartered cherry tomatoes. You can also use 2 medium zucchini cut into 6 strips.
