Sometimes a fresh salad is all you need. Sometimes, simplicity can become perfection. For me, this Fresh Greens with Asparagus Ribbons, Peas, and Goat Cheese embodies all that I love in spring.




Choose a thick, hearty bundle of fresh-to-the-market asparagus. Using a vegetable peeler, you’ll create beautiful, paper-thin ribbons which you’ll saute in a skillet for no more than a minute.

It’s quick, it’s lovely… and it’s delicious.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds large asparagus
  • mixed salad greens
  • radishes, sliced
  • cooked peas
  • goat cheese, crumbled
  • toasted hazelnuts, sliced in half

Instructions

Trim the woody ends of the asparagus and discard. Using a vegetable peeler, thinly shave the asparagus into wide ribbons.

Heat a bit of olive in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the asparagus ribbons and saute for 30 seconds to one minute.

Combine the greens, radishes, and cooked peas in a salad bowl. Gently toss with asparagus ribbons and top with goat cheese and toasted hazelnuts.

Serve with your favorite dressing. I love a simple lemon vinaigrette with this salad.
