Raw Asparagus Salad with Broccoli Rabe

Bet you’ve never eaten asparagus raw. It’s a little known fact that instead of roasting or sauteing it, you can peel the delicious veg into ribbons for a crunchy, satisfying addition to a salad.

Here, the crispy texture goes perfectly with blanched broccoli rabe and soft avocado.

Add the simple, zesty dressing, and you’ve got a seriously fresh-tasting experience.
