Sunday Supper Suggestion, Raw Asparagus and Spicy Dunk!

Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper. Sunday Supper is one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestion, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

One of the items on our food pyramid is raw. Right along with protein, complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, fruits, and vegetables, is another category - raw.

Raw does not have to always be a salad, and it is best if it is not. Salads while delicious can become boring. So mix it up a bit and put out something different for the family to crunch on. Give thought to any and all vegetables your family might not like cooked (turnips as an example) on a tray with a dunk or a dip and see what happens. It is not unusual for a raw vegetable to be sweeter than the cooked version.

Tonight I stirred together a simple "dunk" and added some fresh asparagus. It doesn't have to be this combination. You can add anything to the base and get a custom flavor for your family. We liked this one and will mix it up again.....

Snap the tough ends off enough asparagus for your family, I would suggest 6-8 spears per person. Let soak in tepid water for a few minutes (5 minutes or so) for the dirt and sand to sink to the bottom of the water. Carefully lift out, drain on cotton toweling to dry.

For the dunk:

Mayonnaise
Sour Cream
Something Else, we used Sweet Thai Chili Sauce, but please use what your family will enjoy.


I used about 2 T of each ingredient, mixing well. This was just right for the two of us. Increase as needed for your family.

Place the smooth dunk in a small bowl, and surround it with the fresh asparagus.

Next time I might try equal parts mayo, sour cream, honey, and mustard......

Enjoy!
