Spring Panzanella with Asparagus

<p>Recipes for panzanella (a Florentine bread salad popular in the summer) typically call for tomatoes, but in the spring, Mike Lata prefers using seasonal ingredients like asparagus and radishes.</p><p><b>Recipe: </b><a href="/recipefinder/spring-panzanella-asparagus-recipe-fw0412" target="_blank"><b>Spring Panzanella with Asparagus</b></a></p>
Spring is here and the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market opens on Saturday May 26. There will be lots to see, familiar vendors and new ones too. With a couple of pantry ingredients on hand, and what you can find at the market, this recipe will be easy to make and has satisfying crunch of fresh local greens, richness of local eggs. Add some cooked meat if you like and enjoy all that the market has to offer.
large eggs
slice peasant bread
1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 lb. fat asparagus
1/4 c. red wine vinegar
Freshly ground pepper
2 c. packed young mustard greens or chicory
1/2 small red onion
1/4 lb. ricotta salata
watermelon radish or 2 large red radishes
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Put the eggs in a saucepan of water and bring to a simmer over moderately high heat. Simmer for 6 minutes. Drain the saucepan and fill it with cold water. Crack the eggs all over and let stand in the water for 1 minute. Peel and thickly slice the eggs; the yolks will be barely cooked but not runny.
  • Spread the bread pieces on a baking sheet and brush lightly with olive oil. Bake for about 12 minutes, until crisp.
  • Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the asparagus until just tender, about 3 minutes. Drain, cool and cut the asparagus in half lengthwise.
  • In a small bowl, combine the 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of oil with the vinegar; season with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, toss the asparagus, toasted bread, greens, onion, and cheese. Drizzle with the dressing and toss. Garnish with the eggs and radish and serve.
