  • ½ cup plant natural yogurt
  • A handful of fresh mint leaves (finely chopped)
  • 4-5 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ lemon juice
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Sea salt & pepper

Rinse under running water the cooked beans and keep them aside.

Rinse and cut the asparagus. Place some olive oil in a griddle pan, add the asparagus and a pinch of salt. Grill them for about 3-4 minutes in medium-high heat, turning them often.Remove from the heat and let them cool. In a big bowl combine the white beans, arugula leaves and asparagus.

To prepare the dressing, mix all the ingredients by using a blender or food processor until you get a creamy texture. Before serving the salad, drizzle some mint dressing, spread some extra chopped mint leaves and sea salt flakes on the top.
