Asparagus Salad

Asparagus Salad

If you are looking for a way to sneak more delicious asparagus into your menu, this recipe for asparagus salad is pretty freakin’ awesome if I do say so myself. I was also able to use a few homegorwn French breakfast radishes into the salad as well.

This salad makes enough for 2 main course or 4 -6 side dishes portions. It’s up to you.

1 pound asparagus
2 carrots
3 radishes {I used my favorite French breakfast radishes}
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup sour cream
1/3 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup Italian parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons chives, chopped

french breakfast radish sliced


Cut  2 inches off the bottom of the asparagus and toss in your kitchen composter. Cut the tips of the asparagus off and place in a large bowl. Set aside. Using a vegetable peeler or mandolin slicer, peel thin ribbons from the asparagus, carrots and radishes and set in a large bowl with the asparagus tips.

For the dressing whisk together the sour cream, olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice. Stir in parsley, chives, salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the salad, toss and serve immediately.
