Summer Asparagus Salad

A few years back some friends brought this tasty asparagus salad to a BBQ.  This salad was gone in 2 seconds flat. Everyone asked for the recipe, including me, and it has been a staple ever since.

Perfect For A BBQ

This dish is PERFECT for summer evening dinners.  You will love this along with any sort of grilled meat.  We had this with steaks and corn on the cob the other night with my family.  My brother said that the only thing he would change about it was to have more of it in his belly!

Asparagus – Bring On The Green

Green salads don’t require lettuce, they just require green!  And this is such a nice variation to your run o’ the mill green salad. So bring on those lovely green veggies like asparagus.

Everything about this salad screams summer to me.  I love the fresh colors and flavors! There is nothing better than making a mouthwatering dish right after a visit to the farmer’s market!
