Shaved Asparagus, Radish & Fennel Salad


Happy happy HAPPY FRIDAY! Can you tell I am happy that it’s the end of the week? Man, this week has been INSANE for me.  Not only have I been up to my normal crazy antics but I also opened my brand new FITNESS STUDIO on Wednesday night! 

I am still in awe that I have my own studio and this whole idea has finally come to fruition…it’s been MONTHS in the making.  Classes start Monday, I’m pumped, ready and raring to go! 

Anyway, today’s Foodie Friday theme is “farmer’s market finds”.  Sadly, our farmers market isn’t quite “open” yet and really the only thing that’s seasonal and fresh around here is asparagus….so guess what I made? Yes, an asparagus salad!

Isn’t it pretty? And it’s simple too.  

While shaving the salad does take a little labor, I totally promise that it’s worth it. 

Other than that, I used the spiralizer to shave the radish and the fennel and drizzled some lemon-tarragon dressing on top and violĆ - you have yourself a perfectly delicious shaved springtime asparagus salad!

Doesn’t it look delish? So fresh, so seasonal and so yummy your taste buds will be doing the tango šŸ˜‰ Haha! 

The lemon-tarragon dressing really ties it together and only takes seconds to make! So much better than store bought dressing, I promise.
