Sweet Raw Asparagus Salad

Debra Redalia

 

 

A few years ago I saw a recipe for raw asparagus salad and tried raw asparagus for the first time. It is delicious!

It’s crisp like celery, and sweet. Very different from cooked asparagus.

I made this lovely salad yesterday for lunch, but it’s also fun to dip spears into your favorite dip or salad dressing.

Use this as a starting point for your own inspiration. Add other vegetables, seasonings, dressing. The raw asparagus will give a sweet crunch.

I like to cut raw asparagus spears on the bias when I make a salad (see photo below).

 

 

I didn’t give amounts because you can make as much as you want.

 

Ingredients:

  • asparagus spears
  • cucumber
  • celery
  • red onion
  • olive oil
  • salt

 

Instructions:

  1. Cut the asparagus and cucumber into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Cut the celery into slices about 1/4-inch thick, and red onion into very thin slices.
  3. Mix in a bowl.
  4. Sprinkle with olive oil and salt to taste.
