Summer Salad with Asparagus & Strawberries

The salad is pretty simple, but it’s all about the quality of the fruit and veggies you use.

I made my own version and added honey, vanilla dressing, and salty pistachios.

I thought about adding shaved fennel, which I think would be delicious, but I wanted to keep the recipe simple and give you the idea that it would be a great twist.

If you’re looking to make this salad a full lunch meal, you could add some toasted rye or sourdough croutons and maybe some chunks of chicken.

But it’s delicious and will pair perfectly with most grilled meats, including fish.

I hope you enjoy this tasty salad as much as I do!
