Fresh Asparagus Caesar Salad

Vibrant Method “Approved Recipe” sourced from A Food for Thought.

There’s something wonderfully exciting about seeing a recipe that completely changes the way you think about food. This is a new take on the classic Caesar salad using asparagus as the "greens". Classic caesar dressing incorporates anchovies (loaded with vitamin A, calcium, and potassium) as the main flavor component, however, if you are completely freaked out by the idea of having to chop up the little fillets, you can use a little Worcestershire sauce , but I think it’s better to go for the real deal. Your brain and eye-sight will thank you!

Method
  1. Holding the tip of your asparagus, use a vegetable peeler (y-shaped is best) to create ribbons of asparagus. Place ribbons in a large salad bowl and combine them with the asparagus tips that will remain behind.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the anchovies, garlic, parmesan, olive oil, and lemon juice to emulsify. Pour the dressing over the asparagus and toss together to combine. Serve with a sprinkling of the flaky sea salt and a few turns of your pepper grinder. Sprinkle a dash of chili flakes, if you like.
