Shaved Spring Salad with Creamy Tarragon Vinaigrette

Serves 4
 
 

Ingredients:

 

Salad:

  • 10 stalks of asparagus, shaved
  • 4 radishes, shaved on mandolin
  • 4 carrots, (tricolor if available) shaved 2 heads frisée or butter lettuce

 

Dressing:

  • 1⁄4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1⁄4 cup plain yogurt (coconut, Greek etc) 2 tsp. white wine vinegar
  • 3⁄4 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh tarragon, chopped
  • 1-2 Tbsp water, for thinning dressing

 

 

Directions:

  1. For dressing: In a small bowl, combine all ingredients and whisk well until emulsified. Add 1 or 2 Tbsp of water to thin it to desired consistency. Alternatively, add all ingredients to a mason jar, attach the lid firmly, and give it a good shake!
  2. For salad: Wash and prep all ingredients. Using a vegetable peeler, shave the asparagus and carrots lengthwise into strips. Discard the remnants of bettor and asparagus that are too thin to peel. Using a mandolin, or a sharp knife, slice radishes thinly.
  3. Place frisée in a large shallow bowl and top with the remaining vegetable shavings. Top with dressing and toss.
