    AmandaInOz's Note:

    From A Slice of Paradise. This has been a regular at our house for years. It can be made well in advance. It's quick and easy to assemble for an everyday dinner and pretty enough for a dinner party. I often substitute verjuice for the vinegar. Serve cold.

      Amanda, you've got a winner of a recipe here! I used asparagus with small diameters and cooked them my usual way in the microwave for 3 minutes. I used 1 T balsamic and 1 T seasoned rice wine vinegar and a shake of garlic powder. . .perfect!!! I let them marinate for about 2 hours in the fridge before serving and then topped with the tomtoes and poured the extra vinaigrette over the tomatoes which was awesome. . .asparagus were tangy and the tomatoes were fresh. I will definitely make this again. Made for Veg*n Swap.

      Very nice. We enjoyed it with dinner last night, and it was even better at luch today after it had more chilling time, I thnk I might play with the flavors a bit the next time I make this... might add some fresh Mozzerella or add some sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds for some of the olive oil.
