It's Super Bowl Sunday! Which usually means a gluttonous dose of spicy chicken wings, greasy BBQ meatballs, and cheesy nachos. If you're looking for some healthier options this year, or just want to add some fresh vegetables to the mix, this asparagus salad is sure to score a touchdown.
I know raw asparagus doesn't fall in the conventional football food category, but give this underdog a chance. If you like asparagus cooked, you'll love it raw! It's sweet, delicate and crisp - and best of all it won't give you heartburn like those chicken wings. Simply julienne the spears (or slice them in ribbons with a vegetable peeler), toss them in a light vinaigrette, and pile high on a plate. If nothing else people will try it out of sheer curiosity. I bet they'll like it too.
