Shaved Asparagus Salad with Soft Boiled Eggs | The Brooks Group

I love to eat asparagus all year, but I crave it big time whenever spring rolls around.

This shaved asparagus salad is pretty and full of springtime vibes, and it’s perfect topped off with a few soft boiled Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs!

If you’ve never tried asparagus raw in a salad before, now’s the time! Shaving the asparagus into thin ribbons using a vegetable peeler makes for a great texture in the salad, and a fun variation on the standard roasted or blanched asparagus.

To get those thin ribbons, I like to look for fat asparagus. Then I take a wide-handled wooden spoon and hold the bottom of the asparagus along with the handle.

Using the spoon handle as a base, I peel away from me with a vegetable peeler.

And voilà! Asparagus ribbons!

Along with the asparagus ribbons, we’re adding some carrot ribbons, thinly sliced radish, peas, potatoes, and sprouts.

And this easy lemon vinaigrette keeps the salad light and fresh.👇

Once all of the veggies are dressed with the lemon vinaigrette, I love to add some dairy free cheese and a little bit of lemon zest.

Ricotta cheese is also delicious here, if you do dairy.

And then for the star of the show, some soft boiled Pete and Gerry’s organic eggs!

I love how Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs works with small family farmers to produce Organic, Certified Humane Eggs.

  1. Looks beautiful Allyson. We are totally on the same vibes with shaved asparagus salads (my post goes up tomorrow Lol). Great minds think alike.
    Loving all you have in yours. The eggs are my favorite though, making it look so darn pretty!
