  1. In a large bowl, combine the peas, asparagus, shallots, and green onions.
  2. Whisk together the almond butter, lemon juice, maple syrup, sea salt and water until smooth.  If it seems too thick add a little more water (by the Tbsp) it should be the consistency of a creamy dressing.
  3. Pour the dressing over the vegetables in the bowl, and mix together until the vegetables are coated.
  4. Serve!
