Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 6 servings (as a side salad)


  • 1 lb. asparagus (purchase thick stalks if you can)
  • 3 cups arugula
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa (cooled)
  • ¼ cup shaved parmesan

Orange Vinaigrette

  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper


  • Shave asparagus: Chop off the tough ends from asparagus stalks. If you want, also cut the tips off and set them aside to use as garnish. Using a vegetable peeler and starting at the end of the asparagus, peel asparagus from end to end into long ribbons. It helps if you hold the asparagus down on a cutting board to stabilize it.
  • Assemble Salad: Put asparagus ribbons in a large salad bowl. Also add arugula, sliced strawberries, cooked quinoa, and shaved parmesan (save a few slivers to garnish salad with). Drizzle dressing on and toss salad well.
  • Garnish salad with asparagus tips and parmesan slivers if desired.

Orange Vinaigrette

  • Add all ingredients to a small jar, cover and shake well. If you don't have a jar, you can add ingredients to a small bowl and whisk together.
