Asparagus and carrot salad
 Holley Grainger, MS, RD

Asparagus contains asparagine, an amino acid that breaks down fat. It’s also a natural diuretic.

  • 5 asparagus spears
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 2 Tbsp sliced red onion
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinaigrette
  • ¼ cup crumbled goat cheese
  • Optional vegetables: grape tomatoes, kalamata olives

Trim asparagus, carrot, and zucchini ends. Slice into ribbons with vegetable peeler or mandolin slicer, discarding outside ribbons of carrots and zucchini; discard zucchini core.

Divide vegetable ribbons among four salad plates. Drizzle with vinaigrette. Top with diced red onion, crumbled goat cheese, and optional vegetables, if desired.
