Black Bean Asparagus Salad

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by AmyZoe

I never would have thought to combine black beans, asparagus, and fresh parsley. All I can say is WOW! This salad is very fresh...gets you in the mood for spring and fresh vegetables. Recipe from 2009 Taste of Home Annual Recipes/Iola Egle of Bella Vista, Arkansas. Thank you Iola for a great change of pace! Cook time excludes chilling time.

While I LOVE all the individual ingredients in this recipe, I felt it was missing *something.* I added a bit of feta cheese which def helped...but even so this recipe didn't WOW me and I prob won't make it again. Sorry, but thanks for sharing!
