INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb Asparagus
  • 1/4 small Onions
  • 2 tbsp White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 individual packet Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 cup Spring Mix Salad
  • 1/4 cup, chopped English Walnuts

DIRECTIONS

To toast nuts, place them on a baking sheet in a preheated 325°F oven, turning them after 3 minutes. Bake for another 3 to 6 minutes, checking frequently to avoid burning. You can substitute almonds for walnuts, if you prefer. To make this dish suitable for Induction, simply eliminate the walnuts.

  1. Steam asparagus until crisp-tender, about 4-7 minutes, depending upon size. Drain, and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
  2. Combine white onion, vinegar, mustard, sugar substitute, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Gradually whisk in oil.
  3. Divide lettuce on 4 plates; arrange asparagus on top and drizzle with vinaigrette. Sprinkle with walnuts and additional salt and pepper, if desired.
