Questions & Replies

  1. The pic shows whole asparagus spears but the recipe says cut in pieces. Is there a preference?


  1. This tasted quite nice and was stunning to look at. Like several other reviewers, I added some balsamic vinegar, which added some depth and helped to balance the sweetness of the honey. Next time I'll use more balsamic vinegar and decrease the quantity honey to 1 tbsp. I think a hearty cracking black pepper would be a welcome addition. UPDATE: I've made this again and used the following proportions for the dressing: 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar; juice from half a lemon; 1 tbsp. honey; olive oil to taste. I also added a LOT of black pepper to the salad, and it was perfect! I would rate this as 5 stars with the adjustments, for my personal tastes. Thanks for a great recipe!
  2. It amazes me that so many people say they can't cook and revert to eating disgusting frozen meals or pre-packaged meals when there are easy and delicious dishes like this available. It is healthy and too easy to be as elegant as it is.
  3. I think I discovered with this salad that I don't like asparagus cold. There, now that's out of the way, I can review this salad. The dressing with the asparagus and strawberries seperately was great (I did add black pepper and a sprinkle of salt), although I used far less dressing than called for, just personal taste. I am torn because I really liked the strawberries with the dressing, and the asparagus was OK, but something about eating them together in the same bite just didn't work for me. It obviously works for a lot of other people, though. It was beautiful, and really did look like spring in a bowl. Thanks, Lori for posting your recipe.
  4. This is wonderful and screams spring! Even my very picky four year old approves. This will be on my easter table this year
  5. This is a simple and delicious salad, perfect for spring. Really enjoyed. Thanks for sharing!


Hey there! I am the wife of my dh, Steve, to whom I've been married a very short 12yrs. I am also the SAHM of three boys (11yo and 4yo at home, 23yo on his own). My middle insists that you know he is #57 in the picture, the first player facing you. LOL I graduated from Ball State University with a BS in Pre-Professional Psychology, which I get use of here at home frequently. I enjoy entering local bakeoffs and contests, creating handmade cards and am active in my local MOPS group. I have a extensive collection of cookbooks, but have found that Zaar has taken care of my appetite for any hands on cookbooks. I just love to bake, especially for the high school football team here during the fall. It is my favorite time of the year......sweaters, bonfires, leaves, pumpkins, caramel apples, football, all the stuff about fall is fun! Thanks for checking out my "about me" page and I look forward to seeing you around on the boards. <a href=""><img border="0" src="" alt="web site hit tracking"></a><a href="">Staples Office</a> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="">
