#FoodieFridays: June edition of Crab and Asparagus Salad

By: Cecilia Harris
January 11, 2018
We love salads at RWL! Not only are they healthy but they are so yummy because you can chuck loads of stuff in it. What some of us do, and a few of us in the office have been guilty with this before, is that we end up making a dressing that is so calorific that we might as well get a Big Mac from Maccy D's. But here's a healthier way to go about it. This Crab and Asparagus salad is healthy because of the following; 
Crab meat can protect the heart, reduce inflammation, strengthen bones, boost the immune system and help stimulate circulation.  It is packed with essential fats, nutrients and minerals that the human body needs to function normally. From selenium and omega-3 fatty acids to protein and vitamin B, crab meat is a very good addition to your diet.

Asparagus is a very good source of fibre, folate, vitamins A, C, E and K, as well as chromium.  It's one of the top ranked fruits and vegetables for its ability to protect against cell-damaging free radicals which have been associated with many illnesses and premature aging.
Greek yogurt is an excellent source of calcium, potassium, protein, zinc, and vitamins B6 and B12. Also, it contains probiotic cultures great for gut health and usually has up to twice the protein content of regular yogurts.
Ingredients (serves 2)
100g cooked crab meat
10 asparagus spears, trimmed
50g rocket
3 tbsp Greek yogurt
1tbsp wholegrain mustard
Juice 1/2 lemon, plus wedges to serve
Method
1) Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the asparagus for 2 minutes or until just cooked through.
2) Meanwhile in a bowl mix the Greek yogurt, mustard and lemon juice.
3) When the asparagus has cooked drain them and tip them into iced water to refresh them. Drain again and cut each spear at an angle into 2-3 pieces.
4) Mix the crabmeat and asparagus in the dressing. Add the asparagus, crabmeat and rocket together on a plate.
