RECIPE: raw asparagus salad

The local farmer's market offers tons of raw vegan foods and it's pretty incredible. However, it's also  pretty expensive. I usually make note of the ingredients and then head home to make my own humble version. This particular salad is my own re-creation of something that inspired me at the market.

RAW asparagus salad
1 bunch of asparagus, chopped
1 tomato, chopped (or 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved)
1 avocado, cubed
1/4 cup red onion, sliced thinly
1 T apple cider vinegar
1 T mustard powder
1 T maple syrup

Combine the asparagus, tomatoes, avocado, and onions in a bowl and mix. Mix the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and then pour over the salad. ENJOY! 

How easy is that? It's so easy, so delicious, refreshing, easy, and totally rad.



  1. I'm not a vegan neither a raw foodie, but I'm really interested in raw food! I love my green smoothies in the morning and creative meals though... I wasn't expecting raw asparagus to be as delicious mixed with those vegetables! The dressing matches perfectly the salad. Thanks a lot for that recipe! I think I'm going to make it quite often!

    1. Oh I'm so glad!!! I truly believe that raw foods don't have to be an all-or-nothing approach, so if I can help others enjoy raw foods in a stress free way then I am BEYOND excited :) and yes, the dressing and these little guys are a perfect match!
