Here's a salad where we've combined two stars of the spring garden, asparagus and peas. Since the asparagus goes into the mix raw, you'll want to look for the freshest, most tender spears you can find and slice them into very thin rounds.

Skeptical but so much better than I imagined! A must try! I must say I didn't think this recipe was worth trying but I am glad I did. I love it only for one small thing I don't; and that is Asparagus. The salad is great though without that. I just don't like asparagus. I ate it though! Read More
