Spring Strawberry and Asparagus Salad

Getting more greens and nutrients into your body isn’t hard when it tastes delicious!  The salad I am sharing with you today is super fast and easy to make, and so good.  I use arugula as the base which is packed full of vitamins, and combine it with sweet strawberries and asparagus for a delicious Spring combination. I also sprinkle some pistachios on for crunch, and toss it with a super easy 3 ingredient dressing.  Anyone can make this, and it is perfect alongside a protein source. My favorite is grilled tempeh!
