Shaved Asparagus Salad

Looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day dinner to romance your sweetie? Well, look no more because Oliver’s is ready to be your wingman! With decadent ingredients at affordable prices, anyone can put together a romantic dinner without a reservation. Tender spears of organic Asparagus can be just as delicious raw as they are cooked, and we love them in this super fresh salad. Crisp watercress, thinly shaved veggies, and a lemony dressing are the perfect foil for rich dishes like Seared Filet Mignon or Grilled Lobster Tails – it’s the perfect thing to brighten up even the richest menu!
