Asparagus Salade Supreme

A daily salad with lots of raw “alive” foods is a great way to give your body life-supporting enzymes and nutrients. The creative possibilities are endless. Here’s just one idea from Doris Sokosh’s book, Triumph Over Cancer – My Recipes for Recovery:

  • 1/2 – 1 lb. thin asparagus stalks, raw or very lightly steamed
  • 2 red peppers, chopped or cut in strips
  • 1 small head Boston or red leaf lettuce
  • 1 – 2 scallions, thinly sliced


  • 4 tablespoons tahini
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
  • enough water (preferably distilled) to make creamy consistency
  • few dashes cayenne, dill
  1. Snap off the fibrous ends of the asparagus. Cut remaining stalks into 1-inch pieces.
  2. Arrange lettuce leaves, asparagus and pepper slices on a serving dish.
  3. For the dressing: place tahini in a small bowl. Stir in lemon juice, then slowly add water until light and creamy. Stir in seasoning and let set a bit to meld flavors before serving.
  4. To serve, pour dressing on the veggies in concentric circles and sprinkle scallions over. Optional: take a picture before serving — the salad won’t last long!
