This is a keeper! Incredibly tasty and healthy! I did not have arugula on hand so added organic grape tomatoes. Toasted pumpkin seeds, but I bet pine nuts would work too! And I shaved in some reggiano Parmesan instead. Worked with what I had on hand. Will try exact recipe now that I can plan ahead, I'm sure it's just as fantastic.
Wonderful salad. The flavor of a good honey shines through. Shaved asparagus marinated in the dressing was delicious. Guests raved.
Delicious salad. The honey in the vinegarette balances the sharpness of the arugula. I can only find hazelnuts around Christmas for some reason so I subbed in walnuts but pecans would also work. Would make again for sure.
I substituted blue cheese and toasted walnuts for the gouda and hazelnuts, omitted the arugula (didn't have any on hand), and added a bit more lemon juice...otherwise I stuck to the vinaigrette recipe and eveything tasted great! Will definitely be using this recipe as a guide again!
Absolutely loved this salad! I have found that I now prefer raw asparagus over cooked. This salad is very light, flavorful, and easy to put together.
My daughter made this for my birthday dinner and happily I just found this recipe so I can make it at home. Can almost taste it as I type this review. Delicious and very satisfying.
What a great, simple recipe! I was blown away with how delicious it was. Instead of shaving the asparagus, I cut them into matchsticks. Definitely will add to the rotation.
Carefully shaved the asparagus on a Behringer slicer. Loved the dressing and substituted about 2 teaspoons agave nectar in place of honey. Loved the play on sweet and tart, peppery and mild. I will definitely make this again and again.
Made this salad for Easter dinner and it was AMAZING -- a definite make again. Notes: we did add a bit more honey to the vinegrette and subbed toasted pecans for hazelnuts (will do that again too). Another note, I am never a fan of a cup measurement for greens or herbs. we used a 5-ounce container of arugala which was perfect.
This recipe is great even for people who don't like asparagus! Shaving the stalks is a pain, but worth it!
