    BeccaReb's Note:

    Adapted from Farmer John's Cookbook by John Peterson (Gibbs Smith, 2006). The long months of winter greens and root vegetables are coming to a close, and what better way to tip your hat to spring eating than with asparagus? In this recipe for Asparagus and White Bean Salad, asparagus takes center stage with a cast of enthusiastic flavors like feta, lemon zest, mint and radishes. Hello spring! Served with crusty bread, this salad makes a terrific meal. SIMPLE SOLUTION: White beans provide a delectable, hearty tenderness, without overwhelming the asparagus. Tangy feta, zesty lemon, and a touch of mint gives this salad a bright and refreshing flavor. If you have a special steamer just for asparagus, in which the asparagus is steamed standing upright, cut the asparagus into pieces after steaming.
