Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus (about 1 to 1.25 pounds)
  • 1 avocado cubed
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh mint leaves torn or chopped

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Add the mint leaves and serve right away.
