This is a light salad with a lot of flavor. The dressing makes this salad standout. I like to make it and eat for lunch, or when having a friend over. Makes quite a bit. I sometimes make the dressing and store in the refrigerator and cut ingredients in half.

OMG - so yummy! I used green beans instead of asparagus and it was so good!! The vinaigrette was out of this world! I cut the calories just a tad by using light OJ and 4 tsp oil. This dressing would be good on a million different salads! What I really love is that this is so easy to make and that I always have these ingredients at home - AND it's easy to do it just by feel, no measuring needed! Thanks for a recipe that's going into my book#172809 cookbook!
