Shaved Asparagus Salad

It’s been crazy hot here and made worse by that fact that I’m super pregnant and nearly immobile from being gi-normous. With that, I decided a hearty spring salad was an order. Something fresh, flavorful and full of bright colors. I know, this is a total  hodge podge, but my salads usually are. In fact, they are usually born from a refrigerator clean out.

These clean outs are a total hit or miss with my family. And this was a miss, by a long shot. Thankfully, Matt made the entree for last night’s dinner—for the win. Wah. I even threw in honey tangerines, a favorite for the little guy and he still passed on my spring salad.

Well at least I have left overs for lunch today.

    I think certain recipes are only appreciated by females. This salad might be one of them. Although, I will admit that I married my husband for his feminine palate. He never scoffs at salad and loves vegetables. This is a good time to admit he grew up in LA, hah.

    Anyway, I’d love to share this salad with you. Do you know the sex of the baby? I’m betting it’s a girl if you’re craving salad, hehehe :)
