I loved this! Great flavor - would be wonderful to take to a summer potluck. I made this for lunch and served with salmon - they go great together! The only thing I did different was I used thinly sliced shallots instead of red onion. I think I will start doing that more often in salads - I don't like a whole lot of onion taste and shallots can be very thinly sliced so as not to be so prevalent, but you still get the nice flavor.
This is an excellent recipe. I changed it a bit to suit the ingredients we had, I used pumpkin seeds instead of pine nuts, and fresh crumbly mexican cheese instead of feta, and added some chopped ham leftover from easter. The real stars are the wonderful dressing, the asparagus and the red onion. Incredible! We were using our bread to wipe down the plates!
I knew this would be good w/ all the ingredients listed, but it was unexpectedly great! I think the sweetness of the basil and saltiness of the feta really set this off, along w/ the pinenuts and red onions adding flare. Great recipe. Thanks!
I loved this dish! I simplified it by replacing the basil/chives/cilantro with fresh parsley. Also I left out the feta to reduce calories. It didn't need it! It doesn't save well, so don't make more than you need to serve.
