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.
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)

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.
