Spring Shaved Veggie Salad

This Spring Shaved Veggie Salad features the best of Spring produce in fun ribbons! The ribbons are then tossed in a fresh light “pickle”-style dressing making this a great salad to make ahead.

I like to think of this Shaved Veggie Salad as a plethora of lovely vegetables that are just barely pickled. Y'all, I am a PICKLE GIRL. When we go out for BBQ, I will always add a heaping helping of pickle slices from the “pickle, pepper, and onion” condiment bar. Now typing that out, are pickle condiment bars a thing places other than Texas? If not, goodness gracious am I glad to live here. These pickle bars are LIFE. So this salad takes a bit of all the lovely Spring vegetables (asparagus, carrots, zucchini, golden beets) and combines them in the loveliest way. All you'll need is a great vegetable peeler OR a microplane, if you have one (oh you fancy). Peel each veggie into thin strips and toss them in a bowl. Then, we add the light (what I want to call) “pickle dressing!”

The dressing is simply lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, a little olive oil, fresh dill, and sea salt. Pour this easy dressing over the vegetables, toss, and serve. Note that because this salad doesn't have any lettuce, it is a GREAT option to make ahead! Similar to a great coleslaw, I argue it gets even better as it sits in the fridge.

I hope you enjoy!
