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!
1½ pounds white asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2 inch pieces
4 cups Mixed Greens
¼ cup pecans, toasted and chopped
Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until smooth.
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add the asparagus pieces and blanch for 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Plate spring salad mix with asparagus and pecans and top with dressing. Enjoy!
