Meatless Meals - Two Recipes Using Sea Asparagus

At our local farmer's market they sell Sea Asparagus. It is a salty, tasty little vegetable and quite versatile too!  It can be made into a substitute for lomi salmon, salad dressing, mixed with taro, cone sushi, and even pesto.  The following is the salad I made and the second recipe is for poke that I found to be quite delicious.

Tomato Avocado Sea Asparagus Salad

1 ripe Haas Avocado, diced
1 large ripe tomato, diced
1 cup chopped Sea Asparagus, rinsed
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 to 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Salt to taste

Mix all ingredients together and serve.

Sea Asparagus Poke Salad

The recipe can be found HERE. Note: I didn't use fresh sashimi in my version because I didn't want to run to the store. It taste delicious without the sashimi but I am sure it would have been even better with the sashimi.

To make this a heartier meal, you can make a poke bowl by placing freshly cooked rice in a bowl and the poke salad over the rice.
