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.
