Asparagus Finger Salad

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Snap off and discard woody bases from asparagus. If desired, scrap off scales. Cook asparagus, covered, in a small amount of boiling water for 2 to 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Transfer asparagus to a bowl filled with ice water. Set aside.
  2. For dipping sauce, in a bowl combine sour cream, lemon juice, chives, tarragon, salt, and pepper. Cover and chill until serving time.
  3. To serve, cut center vein from each lettuce leaf, keeping each leaf in one piece. Place lettuce leaves on a serving plate. Pat asparagus dry with paper towels. Cut each carrot half into 4 equal lengthwise strips. Divide asparagus and carrot strips evenly across middle of lettuce. Sprinkle each serving with finely shredded lemon peel. Wrap lettuce around asparagus and carrots. Place each asparagus salad upright in a small cup. Serve or drizzle with dipping sauce. Makes 4 servings.
