Trying to figure out how I would do the shaved salad recipe contest when my mom brings me two bunches of asparagus! I already had some frozen peas in the freezer so I decided to create a salad with both. —David White
Test Kitchen Notes
I think this salad could be great on top of some chopped romaine or even some spinach (or even more shaved asparagus) but on its own, it was a little slim. —Anna Francese Gass
