Did you know asparagus has been cultivated for over 2,000 years? While white asparagus is considered a delicacy, the green variety stands testament that Spring has arrived, as its color comes from none other than the sun. Asparagus aside, Spring unfurls an abundance of fresh, snappy produce in every shade of green. Keeping seasoning simple & light allows this salad’s crispy flavors to shine. Pairs well alongside your favorite fish or slice of quiche for a light seasonal meal.
