Shaved Asparagus and Carrot SaladThere’s not much to say about this one.  The other week’s Shaved Asparagus Pizza inspired me to incorporate my leftover shaved asparagus into a salad.  I also had carrots on hand, so I thought “why not give them a little shave, too?”  I then piled the ribbons over top a handful of lettuce, drizzled with a quick citrusy homemade dressing and served it along side our dinner.  I loved having a new green leafy option.  In other words, it definitely beat grabbing a handful of salad mix from the bag and dowsing with bottled Ranch.  Just sayin’…  :)

Shaved Asparagus and Carrot Salad with a Creamy Citrus Dressing

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 2-3 servings

Shaved Asparagus and Carrot Salad with a Creamy Citrus Dressing

    For the citrus dressing:
  • 1 Tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • For the salad:
  • 4 to 5 asparagus spears, washed and dried
  • 1 to 2 large carrots, peeled
  • lettuce or salad mix

In a small bowl, whisk together the orange juice, lemon juice, honey and Dijon mustard. Season with salt and pepper; set aside.

Using a vegetable peeler, shave the asparagus and carrots into thin ribbons. Arrange a handful of lettuce or salad mix onto two or three small salad plates, then top with the vegetable ribbons. Drizzle each salad with dressing; serve immediately.
