organicexpert Rustic asparagus polenta salad.
So about those leftover asparagus tips from your ribbon salad - blanch them quickly and toss them in with some polenta croutons, tiny tomatoes, crushed olives and red onion. Top with a sassy lemon vinaigrette and you are good to go!

organicexpert Asparagus ribbon salad.
Large local asparagus spears are transformed into ribbons with a veggie peeler. Top and tail the spear and peel each spear into strips (don't freak out - this goes fast) Add the ribbons to your fave spring salad.
Toss the woody ends into your compost pile and save the tips and other bits from the stalks - I'll show you some ideas on how to use them later this week.
Happy #localfoodweek #localfoodlove
