  • 10 thin asparagus
  • 2 green onions (thinly sliced)
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley
  • 1/4 cup sliced basil leaves
  • 1 large lemon (juiced and zested)
  • Lemon Vinaigrette
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice + remaining zest (from above)
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  2. Add all of the dressing ingredients to a mason jar, cover tightly, and shake until thoroughly combined.
  3. To prepare the lemon for both the salad and the dressing, use a zester and remove as much as the zest as you can without getting any of the white pith. Set the zest aside, and squeeze out all the juice into a small bowl.
