Day 3 Salad 3 - Raw Aparagus Salad

Tonight I wanted to make something super simple, so this seemed like a perfect fit.


julienned raw asparagus

Mack House Dijon Vinaigrette:

good seasoning natural packet (please don't judge me)
1 big clove fresh garlic (grated on a micro-plane)
juice of 1 lime
3 Tbs red wine vinegar
1/4 c veg oil
1 tsp Dijon
splash Braggs amino acids

Simply julienne the spears (or slice them in ribbons with a vegetable peeler), toss them in a vinaigrette, and pile on a plate.

This could not be any simpler. I did not have much luck with my veggie peeler, so I just sliced the spears with a knife. It was tastier than I thought it would be. We all give this salad a big thumbs up. The baby LOVED it.

I found this recipe on the Foodista Blog. She made it for Super Bowl Sunday as a bit of green amongst the meat, cheese, and chips. The original recipe is here:

  1. tonight was yummy, but I was super tired and didn't make quite enough. Everyone loved it and we could have eaten much more. Oh well. Live and learn.
