Break or cut the ends of the asparagus off and discard. Use a vegetable peeler and shave the stalks, saving the top of the asparagus. You may need to slice the tips in half if they are too large. Combine the shaved asparagus, edamame, mint and almonds in a large bowl. Mix dressing ingredients and toss.

Serve by itself or as a side. It’s a great addition to my Quinoa Salad

Enjoy!
