Fantastic combination of flavors. Be sure not to cook the asparagus too long and to cool it immediately so that it retains some crunch. Took this to a potluck and it vanished.

I am always looking for a great salad. My husband says this is a keeper. Even used feta cheese for the dressing when I didn't have blue.
