About

This salad was a fun way to incorporate some white asparagus into a fresh pile of greens. It would also work with green asparagus, but wouldn’t be quite as pretty. Enjoy :-)

 

*Note: If you find yourself tempted to purchase purple asparagus be forewarned that the pretty purple color turns right back to green once you cook it. A little disappointing!
