Cooking Instructions

  1. Blanch the asparagus tips in boiling salted water for 30 seconds, then plunge into iced water.
  2. Drain and roughly chop the asparagus tips, then place in a mixing bowl with the salad onions, lemon zest and 1 tub cottage cheese. Blend using a hand-blender until the ingredients are just combined, then fold through the remaining cottage cheese. Spoon into the middle of a serving platter.
  3. Blanch the asparagus spears in the same manner as the tips, then shave thin ribbons from some of the spears using a vegetable peeler. Toss with the lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil and pile onto the dip. Stand the remaining asparagus spears around the dip and garnish with edible flowers.
