Delicious. I didn't have roasted pepper so used fresh and the crunch of it was nice. Since I had oatmeal for brekkie and plan a vegetarian dinner I figured that I could afford a whole egg, lol. I had to use baby spinach for the bed but it all came together beautifully and made a very enjoyable lunch.

I halved the recipe, and otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I loved the taste, but next time I will cut the asparagus in half and I'll also add some iceburg lettuce instead of just using baby greens. Loved the mix of flavors. I made this for Zaar 123 Tag.

Boy, did we all on the farm ever enjoy this salad! I picked (about 1 lb) of fresh asparagus yesterday morning, and followed the recipe exactly, except for making 1/2 recipe. I did add some salt & pepper to the end result & mixed this beautiful asparagus with some fresh lettuce leaves. I might even use the whole egg next time. This is a fabulous taste sensation for this wonderful, healthful vegetable. :) Made for Everyday is a Holiday! May 2009
