Asparagus Avocado Salad
- ½ bunch tender asparagus, trimmed and cut in half (about 2 cups)
- 1 whole avocado
- 2 cups mixed greens
- 2 Tbsp black sesame seeds
- 1.5 tsp sesame oil
- 1.5 tsp rice vinegar
- 1.5 tsp maple syrup
Fill a pot with at steamer insert with water just below the steamer insert bottom. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer. Add the asparagus halves to the steamer insert. Cover and steam for about 5 minutes.
In a small bowl, make the dressing. Add the sesame seeds, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and maple syrup to the bowl. Whisk thoroughly to combine.
Place about one cup of mixed greens into each serving bowl. Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and slice the avocado into half inch slices. Spoon the slices out into each serving bowl. Use half an avocado per bowl.
When the asparagus is finished steaming, add half of the asparagus to each salad bowl. Drizzle with dressing and serve.
