Ribboned Asparagus Spears with Radish, Cucumber, Bell Pepper, Green Onion, Mixed Sprouts, Dried Cranberries, Dried Blueberries, and Homemade Lemon Tahini Dressing
*** I absolutely hated this salad. I have seen ribboned asparagus salads several times and they always say that it tastes delicious and it always looks amazing to me. Apparently I dont like raw asparagus, no matter how finely ribboned. I thought it tasted terrible and ended up throwing the whole thing in the trash. I felt really bad considering all of the other ingredients and how long it took to ribbon 8 asparagus spears but it literally made me feel nauseous. I dont think I’ll be able to eat asparagus for a wile. This was very disappointing, I really thought I would love it. EW!!!
I thought I would upload it anyway though, I did spend some time on it. If you are considering making ribboned asparagus be sure to test out a bit first before you ribbon a buch of asparagus.
To “ribbon” asparagus is to basically take a vegetable peeler to it until there is nothing left.
