Shaved Spring Salad with Creamy Tarragon Vinaigrette - New Canaan & Darien Moms
CatwithaK shares her take on a delicious salad that’s perfect for Spring, you need to try it for the dressing alone!  
Serves 4
10 stalks of asparagus, shaved
4 radishes, shaved on mandolin
4 carrots, (tricolor if available) shaved
2 heads frisée or butter lettuce
¼ cup Olive Oil
¼ cup plain yogurt (coconut, Greek etc)
2 tsp. white wine vinegar
¾ tsp. Dijon mustard
1⁄2 teaspoon Sea Salt
1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons fresh tarragon, chopped
1-2 Tbsp water, for thinning dressing
For dressing: In a small bowl, combine all ingredients and whisk well until emulsified.  Add 1 or 2 Tbsp of water to thin it to desired consistency. Alternatively, add all ingredients to a mason jar, attach the lid firmly, and give it a good shake!
For salad: Wash and prep all ingredients. Using a vegetable peeler, shave the asparagus and carrots lengthwise into strips.  Discard the remnants of bettor and asparagus that are too thin to peel.
Using a mandolin, or a sharp knife, slice radishes thinly.
Place frisée in a large shallow bowl and top with the remaining vegetable shavings.
Top with dressing and toss.
