Asparagus Salad

Asparagus is a great source of folate. You’ve likely heard of folate and folic acid. Folate is a type of B vitamin that is found naturally in foods like dark green leafy veggies, fruit and fruit juices, grains and nuts, beans and peas. The form known as folic acid is used in dietary supplements. Both forms help your body to produce and maintain new cells (hello glowing skin ;)), and also helps prevent changes to DNA that may lead to cancer. So take a bite into this scrumptious salad while doing your body a healthy favor!
