How To Make This Spring Mix Salad

1. Quickly pickle the onion by adding thinly sliced red onion to a bowl with 1/4 cup red wine vinegar and 2 tsp salt. Mix and set aside.

2. Prep and measure out the broccolini and asparagus. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and prepare an ice bath (cold water with ice cubes in a large bowl).

3. Once the water is boiling, add the broccolini and asparagus and cook for 3 minutes and then remove to the ice bath to cool for a few minutes. Once cooled, remove to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and pat dry.

4. Toss all of the ingredients with the dressing and enjoy.
