Lemony Asparagus Salad

Ah Pinterest. I found this delicious looking asparagus salad on there a few weeks back. Asparagus is in season so I kept meaning to make it to go with dinner. However, I never seemed to be ahead of the ball enough to make it happen. This weekend I got all organized and decided it needed to happen for Monday lunch, so I made it happen. 

Adapted from WholeFoods 

1 bunch asparagus
4 garlic cloves, minced
Juice of 2 lemons
1 tbl honey 
1 tsp stone ground mustard
Fresh mint, minced 

1.  Start by chopping the tips  off of the asparagus and throwing them in a bowl. Next, I quartered the asparagus, although in retrospect I would have just coarsely chopped it. Blanche the asparagus for less than a minute. 

2. Meanwhile combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl as dressing. Toss the asparagus with the dressing and enjoy. 

I enjoyed mine as a Meatless Monday lunch with a ton of feta. It seemed to call for feta. Deliciously lemony and minty with my feta. Looking forward to trying this again!
