Mensa at Home: Asparagus-strawberry salad

The Mensas are closed and you have no idea what you could cook? We will publish recipes from our Mensa one at a time for you to recook at home.

This week, we would have organized an asparagus week in Mensa am Medizincampus. To ensure all of you have the chance of enjoying delicious seasonal vegetables, we are publishing two asparagus recipes this week.
