Fried Oysters

This very tasty shaved asparagus salad is both refreshing and healthy, and it's an interesting twist on a simple salad.


  • 12 ounces jumbo asparagus, tough ends trimmed

  • 1 daikon (about 8 ounces), peeled

  • 2 carrots, peeled

  • 12 fresh mint leaves, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice

  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar

  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Using a vegetable peeler, peel long, thin slices of asparagus into a medium bowl. Cut ends of both the carrots and radish on a slight bias, and peel thin strips of each into the bowl with the asparagus; toss together. Sprinkle with mint.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together orange juice, vinegar, and mustard. While continuing to whisk, drizzle oil into the bowl until well combined; season with salt and pepper. Drizzle vinaigrette over the vegetables and gently toss to coat. Serve immediately.
