You guys.  When you’re looking at magazines, do you save the recipes?  I do.  Usually when I find one that I’m interested in trying, I’ll search it on the web and then pin it to my Pinterest page for later.  Every once in a while, I can’t find the recipe and I have to just pin a picture of the recipe.  That’s what happened with this one.

Seriously… I had to save it.  I mean, how often do I find a recipe for spiralized beet salad???

This dish.  My goodness!  I made a batch last night and I have two servings since!  It is such a bright, beautiful salad… and I mean that in both taste and appearance!  It was my very first time slicing asparagus, and I definitely need some practice on that.  I’ll be making it again, because practice makes perfect!
