Santé Nuts - Spring Shaved Root Vegetable Salad with Chipotle Almonds and Citrus Dressing

An easy, crisp salad with fresh spring vegetables and a bright citrus dressing. Our smoky Chipotle Almonds add crunch, flavor, and heat to this simple recipe. Try it as a light meal or serve it with grilled chicken or fish for a heartier main. 


Serves: 4


  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1/2 bulb fennel
  • 1 bunch radishes
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint, minced
  • 1/2 cup Santé Chipotle Almonds

  2. In a small measuring cup, stir olive oil, mustard, salt, and mint together. Set aside.
  3. Roughly chop the Chipotle Almonds. Add half the chopped nuts into the salad bowl. Reserve the remainder for garnish.
