Shaved Asparagus with Mustard Seed Vinaigrette
.5 bunch asparagus
Mustard Seed Vinaigrette
makes about 6 – 8 ounces
.33 C fresh orange juice
2 T white wine vinegar
.5 t brown mustard seed
.25 C olive oil
dash of stevia (maple syrup, dates, agave, etc…)
Wash asparagus and trim ends. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the stems of the asparagus spears – starting under the bract. Save the bracts (tops) and set aside. Thinly slice radishes.
Blend all ingredients in a blender. Store in an air-tight jar.
In a large bowl, toss shaved asparagus, sliced radishes, coarse pepper, sea salt and vinaigrette. Plate salad and garnish with asparagus bracts and orange zest.
I am just eating this now, as I have a garden full of radishes & a bunch of asparagus in the fridge! I added a handful of baby spinach leaves as I found it wasn't quite big enough for lunch for me. The dressing is awesome too - I'm glad the recipe made enough for 4 servings (or more!), looking forward to using it during the week <3
This salad is very inventive and tastes fantastic! Thanks for sharing *:o)
