    • Heat a griddle pan or heavy frying pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and fry the asparagus for 3-4 mins, making sure that it doesn’t brown too much.

    • Meanwhile, mix all the horseradish dressing ingredients together then assemble the asparagus, cherry tomatoes, rocket and cucumber in piles on four serving plates.

    • Slice the steak into five pieces and place on top of the salad, and finally spoon over the horseradish dressing and season to taste.
