This is the BEST recipe I have ever found using fresh asparagus. I think I could eat this salad everyday for the rest of my life. I discovered this exceptional recipe on foodnetwork, originally from Emeril Lagasse. I have added Blue Cheese crumbles to the finished salad because I think it sends this salad over the top. I have made this recipe several times now. Every time I make it I enjoy it more and more. This salad will make an ordinary meal fabulous!! If you enjoy asparagus as much as I do, I think you will enjoy this recipe!
