I was recently inspired by this Spring Salad with Shaved Asparagus. the original recipe called for Fennel. I had a lot of cucumbers in my refrigerator so I changed the ingredients and the result was wonderful.
I believe recipes should inspire you and not necessarily followed. This is especially true in the summertime when you don’t know what will be ready in your garden or at the farmer’s market. The recipe is as follows:
1 bunch asparagus, pan seared for 3 minutes and chopped
1 bunch radishes, thinly sliced
1 large cucumber
1/4 red onion thinly sliced
1/2 cup raw walnuts, toasted and chopped
1/2 cup blue cheese
Mix all the ingredients together except for the blue cheese. Juice a lemon on top, stir. Add the blue cheese. Enjoy!
