Who knew that you could could eat asparagus raw!? Well now I do, and so do you. It is a beautiful way of integrating this fresh and vibrant spring vegetables into your salads which is exactly what I’ve done with this shaved asparagus salad.

To go with the asparagus I grabbed some leafy greens and some peas to make a wonderfully green spring salad. I toss it all with a tangy vinaigrette and finish it off with some shavings of vegan parmesan cheese for a classic and a little bit luxurious feel. This salad will go with pretty much any meal that needs a green pick me up but I made it for my most recent vegan three course menu video to go alongside this whole cooked cauliflower with hummus and pistachio dukkah. Feel free to check it out or simply make the salad and enjoy!
