Spring Mix Salad with Diver Scallops and Yuzu Vinaigrette

A creamy, citrus-like yuzu dressing is the perfect foil for rich scallops, intensely sweet cherries, and tender spring mix.


16 diver scallops, cooked
4 portions Ready-Set-Serve Spring Mix
2 large Markon First Crop Carrots, peeled, cut into batons, blanched, and cooled
1/4 cup dried cherries or cranberries
1/3 cup toasted walnuts
3 oz. aged white cheddar cheese, small cubes
1 cup fat-free yogurt
3 Tbsp. curry powder
1 tsp. yuzu juice
Markon First Crop Chives
Salt and pepper


Yuzu Vinaigrette
Mix curry, yogurt, and yuzu juice together until blended.
Combine all other ingredients in a mixing bowl, toss with dressing until lightly coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with snipped chives. Serve.


1 bunch Markon First Crop Asparagus, steamed

1/4 C Markon First Crop Basil

2 T Markon First Crop Chervil

2 T C Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice

2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic

1 tsp. lemon zest

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. coriander

1/4 C extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

16 large shrimp, cleaned and threaded onto skewers to prevent curling

1 tsp. kosher salt

Olive oil + 2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, for poaching

Edible petals and micro greens for garnish


Slice tips off asparagus and reserve. Add basil, chervil, one cup steamed asparagus stalks, lemon juice, zest, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper flakes, and oil to a food processor and blend until chunky.

Heat oil and garlic until just bubbling. Add shrimp skewers so that shrimp is fully submerged. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until shrimp is opaque and cooked through. When shrimp are almost cooked, add asparagus tips. Remove all with a slotted spoon and drain on a wire rack.

To plate, arrange tips in a decorative manner. Place shrimp next to asparagus and ladle sauce on top of each one. Garnish with edible petals and micro greens.
