The base is a combo of mache greens and romaine. Then it’s topped with blanched asparagus, peas, radishes, avocado, and feta. I made a very simple lemon-dill vinaigrette that uses pantry staples and doesn’t even require fresh dill. This Spring Green Salad with Asparagus has a little bit of everything going on in there: crunchy lettuce, tart radishes, creamy avocado and the best part – those huge chunks of salty feta.

Planning to bring a dish to Easter? Bring this! It’s a light addition to all that ham and those butter covered rolls. It’s full of nutritious ingredients that will help you fill that belly with some veggies.

Ingredients
1 3.5 oz mache greens
1 cup romaine, chopped
2 bunch asparagus, blanched
1 ½ cups frozen peas, thawed

Instructions
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 1 tablespoon of coarse salt to the water. Boil asparagus for about 4 minutes and then drain in a colander. Then place it in a large bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.
Put all salad ingredients into a large bowl starting with mache greens and romaine. I julienned some of my radishes and cut some in half.
Place all dressing ingredients into a jar with a tight-fitting top. Shake well. Dress right before serving.
