This lovely Asian flavored salad is very easy to prepare and make a beautiful presentation. I discovered this recipe in Bon Appetit, 1999.

Well this is certainly a different way to serve asparagus, I also used navel oranges in place of tangerines, I omitted the ginger this time but I think will add it in next time, all the flavors blended together well and I look forward to making this again, but doubling the recipe next time around, I was lucky to taste a small amount, my DS and DH devoured all of it, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)
