Let the earthy flavour of tender asparagus shine in this healthy salad dressed with fresh ginger, chilli and lime. Hazelnuts and peppery radishes bring a satisfying crunch to this speedy salad that can be made in just 15 minutes.

  1. Cook the green beans in a pan of salted, boiling water for 3 mins, or until tender. Drain, refresh under a cold tap and drain again. Arrange on a serving platter with the asparagus, spring onions, radishes and herbs.
  2. To make the dressing, combine the ginger, garlic and chilli in a small bowl. Add the lime juice and sesame oil. Season with a pinch each of salt, pepper and sugar; mix well.
  3. Scatter the hazelnuts over the salad and spoon over the dressing.
