Diabetic Friendly Orange-Asparagus Salad


  • 8 ounce(s) asparagus
  • 2 tablespoon orange juice
  • 2 teaspoon oil, olive
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard, dijon-style
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • dash(es) pepper, black ground
  • 1 medium orange(s)

Recipe Tip: Chill up to 6 hours (optional).


1. Snap off and discard woody bases from asparagus. If desired, scrape off scales. Cut stems into 2-inch-long pieces. In a covered small saucepan, cook asparagus in a small amount of boiling water for 1 minute; drain. Cool immediately in a bowl of ice water. Drain on paper towels.

2. For dressing, in a medium bowl, whisk together orange juice, oil, mustard, salt, and pepper. Add asparagus and orange sections; stir gently to coat. Serve immediately. (Or cover and chill for up to 6 hours.)
