Ingredient Notes:

Asparagus: Asparagus is rich in minerals and vitamins A, C, and folic acid. They are great for your gut, and can even help with your blood pressure. They’re so good for you!

Strawberries: One of my favs in the summer, strawberries are rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants which help reduce your risk of several health conditions.

How I Support My Gut Health:

On top of using gut-healthy ingredients like asparagus, I also like to have Seed’s DS-01®️ Daily Synbiotic in my daily routine. This synbiotic helps support a healthy microbiome in my gut and keeps my insides so healthy and happy.

The human microbiome is a community of 38,000,000,000,000 (that’s 38 trillion) microorganisms, mostly bacteria, living in and on your body. The genes harbored in these trillions of microbial cells are essential for human development, immunity, and nutrition. There is a close relationship between what we eat and our gut microbiome, which means that we can improve our health by modifying our diet.

Asparagus salad with shallot vinaigrette

How to make shallot vinaigrette:

  1. Whisk together or shake in a jar all of the lemon shallot vinaigrette ingredients and set aside.
  2. To a large bowl or platter add sliced asparagus, defrosted peas, sliced strawberries, and feta cheese. Drizzle with the lemon shallot vinaigrette and toss and enjoy.

Expert Tips & FAQ:

How long does shallot vinaigrette last in fridge? Store shallot vinaigrette in a sealed jar in your fridge for up to a week.

What is the difference between salad dressing and vinaigrette? A vinaigrette is specifically based on oil and vinegar, whereas salad dressing is a general term that can refer to anything you dress your salad with.

Does homemade vinaigrette go bad? It truly depends on what ingredients you add to your dressing. For example, if it has fresh garlic in it, you’ll want to consume it quicker than something that just has oil and vinegar, and spices in it.

Can you leave homemade vinaigrette unrefrigerated? If your dressing has anything creamy in it, like mayo, you’ll want to keep that in the fridge. Oil-based dressings should be kept cold after opening, however, some will be okay on the counter if they don’t contain things like lemon or citrus juice, or fresh garlic and other fresh ingredients.
