Recipe Spring Shaved Asparagus Salad

Serves 4 – Recipe Spring Shaved Asparagus Salad 

To make this a light main dish, add shredded chicken, sliced steak, or marinated tofu.

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon sherry vinegar

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon water

1 small shallot, finely minced

1 pound asparagus, woody ends snapped off

3 medium radishes

⅓ cup toasted, chopped pecans

¼ cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese


Whisk together the honey, olive oil, vinegar, mustard, water, and shallots in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Once asparagus is trimmed and cleaned, use a vegetable peeler to shave off slices of the asparagus, working from the tip to the end of the stalk. Place in a serving bowl. Cut radishes in half then slice into half-moons and add to the bowl with asparagus. Toss with dressing and pecans and top with the cheese to serve.
