Fiddleheads and Asparagus with Spruce Tip Herbed Mayo
For those who love the early wild delicacies of spring - try Fiddleheads with Spruce Tip Mayo. If you can't find fiddleheads, asparagus works perfectly. If you want spruce tips, get out now...the season is incredibly short.
Spruce tips – a lemony-tasting delicacy of spring – really shine in this zesty mayo. It’s delicious served with another spring treat – fiddleheads. Feel free to adjust the herbs in the mayo to suit your taste.
