1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
4-5 large asparagus sprigs, about 1 cup chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots or red onion
2 tablespoons crumbled feta, omit for vegan
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 large lime, juiced
1 small garlic clove, finely minced
1 teaspoon honey
3 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper – to taste


Place chickpeas, romaine, asparagus, shallots, and feta in a medium bowl. Gently mix to combine.

Combine vinegar, lime juice, garlic, honey, olive oil, 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl. To make easy, place bowl on a kitchen towel to prevent from moving. Very slowly drizzle olive oil in a steady drizzle while whisking, using a whisk, to emulsify. Add to salad immediately. Mix to combine.
