Instructions
  1. Make the dressing by whisking together buttermilk, lemon juice and zest, tarragon and garlic paste. Season with salt and set aside.
  2. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and add the broccolini, cooking for about 90 seconds. Add the asparagus to the same pan and cook for 2 more minutes. Remove the greens with tongs or a slotted spoon and place onto a tray lined with kitchen paper. Place another sheet of kitchen paper on top to absorb excess moisture.
  3. Serve the greens with the dressing spooned over and scatter over the blitzed pork scratchings, capers and chopped parsley. Season with Pink Himalayan Salt and freshly ground black pepper.
