  1. To create the dressing, add all of the ingredients into a high powered blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Add a dash of extra water if needed, to help everything blend together.
  2. Once the dressing is really smooth and creamy, season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside.
  3. For the salad, chop the asparagus into thirds and pop these into a frying pan with a little rapeseed oil and sauté over a medium heat until vibrant and tender.
  4. Meanwhile, peel the beetroot and spiralize this into spaghetti strands.
  5. Layer the salad, starting with the rocket, then add the beetroot, edamame beans and asparagus.
  6. Scatter a few dollops of the dressing around the salad and sprinkle over a generous handful of the seed mixture.
  7. Finally, finish the dish with a few edible flowers for decoration and serve!
