Ingredients

  • 1/3 Cup finely chopped shallots
  • 1/4 Cup lemon juice
  • 1 Teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 Teaspoon honey
  • 1 Pound asparagus
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

Directions

In a large bowl, whisk together shallots, lemon juice, mustard and honey. Trim root ends of asparagus and discard. Cut asparagus tips off spears and add to the bowl with shallot mixture. With a vegetable peeler, shave asparagus spears into thin ribbons, adding to shallot mixture as you go. 

Add mint and parsley, and toss salad until combined.

Lemon Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Lemon Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
