This green bean and asparagus salad makes it easy to get your daily dose of greens. Green beans and asparagus pair very nicely and shallots add a lovely touch to the mix. You could serve this salad as a side but I enjoyed it as a main, with an hard-boiled egg. It’s a perfect light lunch that comes together quickly. You can prep all the veggies ahead and add the vinaigrette, shallots and fresh chives when you’re ready to eat.
