  • 5 oz arugula
  • 3 baby carrots shaved thinly with a peeler
  • 1 bunch asparagus shaved thinly with a peeler
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds more or less to taste


  • Rinse and dry the arugula. Place in a large bowl.
  • Rinse and dry the carrots. Peel the outside of the baby carrots and discard. Then cut the end off at a 45 degree angle. Now you can shave thin round slices with a peeler. Toss the shaved carrots over the arugula in the bowl.
  • Rinse and dry the asparagus. Now take the peeler and slowly shave pieces off, you should be turning the asparagus as you shave it. That way you shave it all as evenly as possible. Discard any woody ends of the asparagus. Toss the shaved asparagus over the arugula and carrots.
  • Toss on slivered almonds. You could toast them if you desire. I was in a hurry so I did not bother.
  • Gently toss the salad.
  • If you have a favourite dressing you can use that. I like lemon with asparagus so I used Meyer Lemon Dressing.
  • Serve with a big old this did not fill me up smile!
