Arugula, Clover, and Asparagus Salad w/ Prosciutto

 
 

This salad is my new Summer favorite - it’s light, nutty, and delicious, while being really healthy and filling all at the same time! It’s perfect for making a quick lunch, pairing with a cheese board, or for feeding a crowd. I didn’t include quantities with the ingredients, because I just grab a handful of this and a sprinkle of that when making it for myself, or I just eyeball it when I’m making it for a group. Also, this salad is delicious whether you use clover sprouts or not!

INGREDIENTS:

  • Arugula

  • Asparagus

  • Clover Sprouts

  • Avocado Slices

  • Pecans

  • Goat Cheese Crumbles

  • Proscuitto

  • Olive Oil

  • Lemon

  • Salt & Pepper

INSTRUCTIONS:

Wash the greens well. Snap the ends off of the asparagus wherever they naturally break. Then, using a vegetable peeler, shave thin strips of the raw asparagus, removing the rough outer strips and bits. Combine the arugula, asparagus shavings, and clover sprouts in a bowl. Pour a bit of olive oil over the greens, and squeeze a little bit of lemon juice over them. Add salt and pepper, then toss the greens to coat them evenly. Distribute the greens to a plate or serving dish, and top with avocado slices, pecans, goat cheese, and strips of prosciutto.

This salad pairs really well with cheese + charcuterie boards! It’s also really delicious topped with roasted carrots!
