I served this salad with a traditional Christmas dinner (turkey, ham, etc) and not only was it festive in appearance, but delicious! I received many raves. I made too much, though, and it really tasted best up to a day left over when it is fresh. Thanks s'kat.

This salad recipe includes so many of my favorite foods. I cooked the asparagus until it was crisp-tender. I wasn't sure how I was going to like feta cheese, but I did. Been missing out all this time. The balsamic vinegar is the crowning tough. Thanks s'kat. Great recipe.

Some of my favorites come together to make a deliciously different salad. It is very easy to put together and with it being made ahead of time is a wonderful choice for a dinner party. I drizzled it with a touch of aged balsamic.
