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.

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

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!
