    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    Our favourite early summer salad. Be sure your Feta is not too salty, though the pleasure of this salad is the contrast between the salty cheese and dressing and the rich smooth flavours of the pumpkin seeds and the asparagus. Also the pumpkin seeds give it a great crunch. As a meal, the two of us will eat the whole thing.

      This was good, but definitely different. I probably won't make again.

      This was very tasty and easy to make. We'll be doing it again for an upcoming BBQ of our own!

      I wish I could give this more than 5 stars! I love all of the ingredients on their own, but I doubt that I ever would have thought to put them all together. Our family loved this so much I'll be serving it with Easter Brunch this year. I've got a strong suspicion that it will be the hit of the party! Thanks for the great recipe!
