A lovely delicious salad with the fresh flavors of spring. Try it with the first tender asparagus.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-in . pieces
  • 1 carrot, large, peeled and sliced into ribbons
  • 5 ounces bibb lettuce, about one large head
  • 12 cup frisee
  • 2 cups romaine lettuce, torn

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil, add asparagus and cook 1 minute, drain and cool.
  2. For carrot curls, roll carrot strips into coils and soak in ice water for 10 minutes, drain. (Completely optional. Since I rarely dine with the queen, I generally can't be bothered).
  3. Arrange salad greens on plates. Top with asparagus, carrots, mushrooms, and radishes. Spoon dressing over salad. Add crumbled blue cheese and toasted almonds of desired.
