    Chicagoland Chef du Jour's Note:

    I created this salad after perusing some recipes here and using what I had on hand, avoiding anything too sweet. The pickled beets are just the right ouch of sweet & sour. Looks pretty too! The asparagus can be made well in advance. If your onion is too strong, slice and put in an ice water bath for 5 minutes and drain. Cooking time is blanching and ice water bath time.
