Making a great salad starts with buying the freshest ingredients. I purchase all of my produce from Fareway Meat & Grocery, where I can always find the freshest produce and quality meats. I was able to find all of the ingredients needed to make this Spring salad for our Easter table this year. It has crisp lettuce, shaved asparagus, radishes, hard-boiled eggs, and creamy avocado slices. Drizzled with a delicious dill buttermilk dressing. Let’s make it!
Ingredients Needed (Spring Salad with Shaved Asparagus)
- Spring lettuce – honestly, any lettuce will do here as long as it’s crisp and fresh!
- Asparagus – this will add some crunch
- Hard-boiled eggs – perfect for Easter
- Goat cheese
- Sour cream
- Lemon juice and zest
- Fresh dill
- Garlic powder – you can also use 1 garlic clove (minced) instead
- Hot sauce – for a little heat
- Salt and lots of freshly cracked black pepper
- For the dressing: In a small mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, buttermilk, lemon zest, and lemon juice in a bowl. Whisk together until smooth.
- Stir in the chopped fresh dill, garlic powder, and hot sauce. Salt and pepper to your liking. Set aside until ready to use.
- Make the salad: Arrange the lettuce leaves on a platter or large plate.
- Arrange the rest of the ingredients on top of the lettuce. Season with salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
- Drizzle with the buttermilk dill dressing just before serving. Enjoy!
How to shave asparagus into ribbons
The easiest way to shave asparagus into ribbons is to use a vegetable peeler. First, trim off the woody ends of each spear by chopping them off. Then, holding the spear by the cut end with one hand, use a vegetable peeler to slice away from your hand with steady pressure.
