New Market Post: Shaved Asparagus Salad

I am so excited – my neighborhood farmer’s market opens this week! On Sunday, June 5th, The Montavilla Farmer’s Market officially opens for the 2011 season.

I’ve been volunteering with the market for a few months now, and I have nothing but good things to say about the market, the vendors, and the volunteers. I’m so lucky to live next to such a great little farmer’s market!

As part of my volunteer duties, I occasionally blog for the market. In honor of opening day, I just posted a new blog with a roundup of spring recipes, including a new recipe I just tried: Shaved Asparagus Salad with Hazelnuts and Mint. This salad is so simple, and yet so fresh and tasty. I never knew that raw asparagus could be so delicious and tender!

Head on over to the Montavilla Farmer’s Market blog to see the full post and recipe!
