Recipe Tester Burma rates this Low-Carb Asparagus-Strawberry Salad a perfect 10 and says, “It’s one of those dishes that would evoke a ‘wow’ because it’s so pretty, and it tastes as good as it looks. The results belie the lack of time and effort required.”

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 1 batch Low-Carb Poppy Seed Dressing
  • 12 lettuce leaves (l’d go with butter lettuce.)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese or feta cheese

Instructions

  1. Snap the ends off the asparagus where they want to break naturally. Lay the spears on your cutting board and cut it into 1-inch lengths.
  2. Put ’em in a microwaveable casserole with a lid or a microwave steamer, add a couple of tablespoons water, cover, and nuke on High for 3 minutes – you want it tender-crisp and brilliantly green.
  3. When the asparagus is done, uncover it immediately to stop the cooking, drain it, and put it in an ice water bath; then drain and put it in the fridge.
  4. Let it chill for at least 1 hour.
  5. Remove the hulls from the strawberries and quarter them. Put the asparagus and strawberries in your salad bowl. Give the Poppy Seed Dressing a good shake, pour it over the asparagus and strawberries, and toss.
  6. Line 6 plates with the lettuce.
  7. Toss the asparagus and strawberries again and then pile on top of the lettuce.
  8. Top each serving with blue cheese and serve.
