Shaved Asparagus, Fennel, Jicama Salad

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

For One Serving:

3-4 thick spears of fresh asparagus
1/4 cup very thinly sliced fennel bulb
1/4 cup very thinly sliced jicama
2 tablespoons very thinly sliced red onion


Snap off tough part of asparagus spears and trim off the tips. (You can use the tips as a garnish or save for another use.)

Using a vegetable peeler, remove the tough outer layer of the asparagus and discard. Then, continue to shave each spear, rotating it as you go. It’s helpful to do this on a flat surface. When the spear becomes too small to shave, you can cut it into little pieces to add to the salad.

Use the peeler or a mandolin to very finely slice remaining ingredients.

In a small lidded jar or plastic container, mix:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1-2 teaspoons of lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
1 teaspoon very finely minced fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste

In a bowl, combine all the vegetables. Vigorously shake dressing to mix and then quickly pour over salad. Toss to coat thoroughly, then pile salad onto a plate.

(Optional) Top with:

chopped toasted hazelnuts
crumbled goat cheese

Serve immediately
