- 1 bunch asparagus (about 1 to 1.25 pounds)
- 1 avocado cubed
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 2 Tablespoons lime juice

Wash the asparagus and remove any tough stalks. In a large pan, add about an inch of water and bring to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook just a few minutes until tender and bright green. Drain and plunge in a bowl of ice water to stop the asparagus from cooking.
Drain the asparagus once it's cool and pat dry. Cut into bite-size pieces.
Place the asparagus pieces in a salad bowl. Add the avocado.
Drizzle the salad with the olive oil and lime juice. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
Gently toss the salad.
