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