Peas, Asparagus and Avocado Spring Salad Recipe

This very green salad is a great way to celebrate Spring and make the best of fresh green peas and asparagus. Avocado is full of healthy fats and adds creaminess to the salad. It also makes it more satisfying, so does the walnut garnish. Shaving the asparagus as thinly as possible using a vegetable peeler makes it easy to eat raw, but if you wish, you could lightly steam the asparagus.
