Mia Vargas from Whole Foods shares an easy recipe for a tart salad. You can serve it immediately or let the salad marinate for a few hours to blend the flavors.
The recipe is as follows:
1/3 cup finely chopped shallots
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon honey
1 pound asparagus
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
In a large bowl, whisk together shallots, lemon juice, mustard and honey. Trim root ends of asparagus and discard. Cut asparagus tips off spears and add to the bowl with shallot mixture. With a vegetable peeler, shave asparagus spears into thin ribbons, adding to shallot mixture as you go.
Add mint and parsley, and toss salad until combined.
