Download the full recipe.


  • 1 bunch asparagus, stems removed
  • 1 bunch scallion, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch herbs, like parsley, cilantro or basil, picked 
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider or white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Thinly shave the asparagus with a vegetable peeler or on a mandolin so that you yield long ribbons of asparagus.
  2. Place asparagus, scallion, and herbs in a bowl and set aside.
  3. In a jar, combine all remaining ingredients and shake vigorously.
  4. Dress the asparagus salad with as little or as much of the vinaigrette as you like. Serve cold or at room temperature.

Yield: 6 servings.
