6. Recipe: White and Green Asparagus Salad with Chicken
The asparagus in this salad isn’t cooked. You can use a vegetable peeler to shave it into thin ribbons, which are super delicious. So what’s the difference between white and green asparagus? The white ones grow underground without exposure to sunlight.
