Ingredients
  

  • 500 g asparagus
  • 250 g potatoes
  • 100 g strawberries
  • 1 avocado
  • 200 g arugula or other green salad
  • 100 g feta cheese
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • 1 tsp honey or agave syrup
  • salt to taste
  • fresh basil

Instructions
 

  • In a pan, boil the potatoes. Choose waxy potatoes that will keep their shape and are better for a salad. Let them cool a bit and cut them into cubes.
  • Peel and wash the asparagus and steam it for 3-5 minutes. Depending on their thickness, adapt the cooking time. It should still be a bit crunchy.
  • Wash the arugula/ green salad and cut the avocado and feta cheese into pieces.
  • For the dressing, mix the olive oil, lemon juice, honey, mustard, and salt. Adapt it to your taste if you need more sweetness or sourness. Alternatively, mix the mashed avocado and get a thick creamy dressing for your salad. Add some water if necessary.
  • On a plate, spread the arugula as a base. In a bowl, mix potatoes and asparagus with the dressing. Add the mixture over the arugula and decorate with some strawberry pieces, cheese, fresh basil, and a few edible flowers(optional)
  • Be thankful for your food, relax, and share it with your family or friends.

Notes

The caloric value was calculated per serving.
Benefits:
Asparagus is astringent, sweet, cooling and a diuretic. It is balancing, for all doshas, and is mildly laxative. With some small changes, you can make this salad perfect for each dosha.
Recommendations for doshas:
  • Vata: use lukewarm potatoes to get rather a warm salad, which will suit Vata type better. Avocados and feta cheese are good choices, and some extra cayenne pepper and more basil will improve digestion.
  • Pitta: green salad, arugula, and cucumbers have a cooling effect which suits well a pita type. Reduce the potatoes and consider using soft, unsalted cheese. Add less pepper and mustard or replace it completely with fennel, cumin, or cardamon.
  • Kapha: If there is a Kapha disbalance is better to remove avocado and eat cheese in a small amount. Generally, goat milk/ cheese is a better option than cow milk products for Kapha. Mustard as spice suits well a Kapha type.
