Place the asparagus on the hot griddle pan in a single layer. Cook 2-3 minutes, turning the spears as necessary. Cook until slightly charred and tender.
- Place the salad leaves, pea shoots, and parsley (or any mixed herbs) in a large bowl. drizzle some of the dressing over and toss lightly to coat.
