Green Salad With Asparagus and Peas

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by jenne

A Scandinavian Vegetarian/Vegan salad from Eating Well Magazine. I have fond memories of simple salads such as these during my travels to Sweden. They recommend you use thin, tender asparagus for this recipe. NOTE: I found the raw asparagus kind of strange for me, so next time I am going to cook it slightly before putting it in the salad.

I love the tart dressing that goes over this pretty salad! I added a bit of avocado since I had one available. Would make again!
