Courgette , Asparagus and Wild Garlic Pasta Salad

Wild Garlic,  Courgette and Asparagus Salad

This morning at the train station a more than slight embarassment when a tonne of smelly wild garlic unleashed a viscious smell at the ticket counter . The garlic was leftover from the weekend forays, though I had managed to put some the delicious salad above , the rest I am afraid is now mouldering in a Network Rail dustbin . The garlic was picked around Ubley over the weekend while the
asparagus and courgette the first signs of summer in the vegebox.
