A bright, eye-catching salad; a refreshing change to traditional pasta salads. I have also used this as a main dish salad by adding grilled chicken breast.


  • 1 c. mayonnaise, homemade, organic
  • 1/2 c. coconut oil
  • 2 lbs. asparagus, fresh, organic
  • 2 tbs. garlic
  • 2 tbs. sweet onion
  • 16 oz. brown rice penne pasta
  • 2 tbs. dried rosemary
  • 2 tsp. sea salt


Cut asparagus into 1/2 - 1 inch pieces. Finely chop onion.

Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add asparagus pieces to the skillet and saute for a couple minutes. Add minced garlic and onion, and cook until tender crisp, about 5-6 minutes total.

Pour over hot pasta and toss to coat.

In a bowl, mix rosemary, sea salt, and homemade mayonnaise. Add mayonnaise mixture to pasta mixture and stir (gently) until ingredients are mixed.

Refrigerate 2 hours or until chilled. Serve. ENJOY!
