Combine the rainbow slaw: cabbage, carrots, broccoli, greens, pepper and herbs in a large salad bowl.

Gently steam asparagus, cool and add to salad, then add each ingredient on top; sprinkle with avocado, artichoke hearts, peas and blueberries. Then top with sesame seeds and almonds.

Make Vinaigrette:

Whisk together oil, juice or vinegar, mustard, horseradish, maple syrup, salt and pepper in a small bowl or mason jar.

Drizzle vinaigrette over salad and toss gently to coat. taste and season again with salt & pepper, to taste. Serve and enjoy, your heart will ♥ you!
