I am so excited that Spring is here! I love this time of year because it is the beginning of vegetable surprises at the Farmer’s Markets and grocery stores. Where I live, it is officially asparagus season. The organic asparagus at the grocery stores around here are MASSIVE! I have never seen such huge asparagus. While I usually prefer skinny asparagus for roasting, these jumbo asparagus are perfect for a shaved asparagus salad! All you need is a potato peeler to create beautiful ribbons that will add great texture and flavor to any salad.
I Chose to mix mine with some micro-greens that I had left over, but you could mix them with any other lettuces as well. My greens contains micro-kale and micro-arugula; I really love the intense flavor of micro-greens, plus they look gorgeous! Luckily, I was able to enjoy a few of these salads before the snow hit… AGAIN!
