Wondering what to do with some produce from your garden? Check out this asparagus salad recipe:

  1. 1 pound fresh asparagus
  2. 1 fennel bulb
  3. 2 naval oranges, sectioned
  4. 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  5. 1 teaspoon kosher sea salt
  6. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  7. 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  8. 1 lemon, juiced
  1. Using a vegetable peeler, shave asparagus spears to make ribbons. Use a mandoline to slice fennel and a sharp knife to slice orange sections. In a large bowl, combine black pepper, kosher sea salt, extra-virgin olive oil, Dijon mustard, and lemon juice. Whisk for 30 seconds to combine. Add asparagus, fennel, and orange sections. Toss to combine. Serve immediately.
