Asparagus & Celery Salad

Want to use up a few things in the veggie drawer? Well here you go…..
a nice crunchy salad to go with what ever you are having, lunch or dinner.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 bunch of Asparagus
5 Celery stalks from the heart using the yellowy green leaves too!
1/2 cup red pepper
1/2 cup yellow pepper
1 tablespoon chopped chives (for a little onion taste and fresh green color, balsamic vinaigrette  can make things a little brown)
1/4 Cup balsamic vinaigrette  (make your own its way better)

WHAT YOU DO:
Quickly cook asparagus until bright green then transfer to ice bath to stop the cooking and hold the green color (i did it in a pan with a tsp of oil you can blanch it as well)
Cut all the vegetables on the bias to have uniform shapes and sizes, toss together with dressing and refrigerate for 2 hours.
For serving scoop some onto a plate and sprinkle with the chives and serve more dressing in the side so people can add more if they like.
Enjoy -T

    Great recipe Tasha! Looks like a stir fry salad and would be perfect for a cleanse.
