Top Review by Sweet Diva MJ

Wonderful salad - we loved everything about it - even though I forgot to get the asparagus at the store, and several other things I needed....the two kids with me rolling around in their Heelys and another trying to put everything I didn't need in my cart could have had something to do with it.....but I digress....! I know the asparagus (I love roasted aparagus!) would have only sent it over the top and I will make it again soon with it included! My family couldn't get enough of this salad - like SweetsLady, I could also see putting grilled chicken on it, but it is just great as-is!

  1. Place asparagus in a foil lined 1.5 inch x 10 inch x 1 inch baking pan; sprinkle with olive oil and toss to coat. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until crisp-tender, turning occasionally. Cool.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the spinach, strawberries, walnuts, asparagus. In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the vegetable oil, vinegar, sugar and salt; shake well. Drizzle over salad and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
