This Asparagus Salad is healthy, refreshing and easy to make with crispy asparagus, peppery arugula, cucumber, cherry tomatoes with a homemade lemon herb dressing. It's the perfect lunch or light spring dinner and simple to customize with your favorite crunchy toppings.
MAKE THE DRESSING:Add all the ingredients for the dressing in a jar or a bowl. Shake or whisk until combined.
Prepare and cook the Asparagus: Wash and dry your asparagus. Remove the tough woody ends. Air fry the asparagus at 375F for 5 minutes or until just cooked. You can also blanche, sauté or roast them in the oven for 7-8 minutes. We want them to still be crispy and not mushy. Or leave them raw if you prefer.Cut asparagus: Once the asparagus is done, allow to cool then cut into a bias
ASSEMBLE THE SALAD: Place the arugula leaves in a large mixing bowl. Season with salt, pepper and little bit of the dressing.
Add the remaining salad ingredients and drizzle with more dressing. Top with your favorite nuts and seeds and serve.
