Zucchini, Asparagus and Carrot Ribbon Salad

Today, I have a story for you about a girl. I won’t say who the girl is. Let’s just say this girl suffers from food anxiety. This girl worries that people are trying to trick her into eating onions. This girl likes to know exactly what is in the food she is eating. This girl fears that someone will tell her she is eating steak to later find out it was cow tongue. This girl’s worst nightmare is going to a chef’s choice dinner. These are the thoughts that keep her up at night.

This girl’s worst nightmare came true a few weeks ago. A chef’s choice dinner, where she had no say in what she ordered. But this girl couldn’t complain because it was a dinner celebrating the birthday of one of her best friends. And you know what? This girl ate, and enjoyed, every dish that was put in front of her. This girl even ate meatballs, clams, and rhubarb. This girl was way outside of her comfort zone. And this girl learned a lesson. Try it, you just might like it! One of the dishes this girl ate was very similar to this Zucchini, Carrot, and Asparagus Ribbon Salad. For a girl that hates salads, this girl really enjoys this one.

Here is what you’ll need

With a peeler, create ribbons of carrots

Do the same with the zucchini and asparagus

Whisk together the ingredients for the dressing

Pour the dressing over the salad and refrigerate. Shave Parmesan over the salad just before serving.

This girl’s anxiety level is slowly decreasing…
