This simple luxurious salad was a hit the first time I created the recipe so I never stopped serving it.

I used parsley because that is what I had but chopped basil or mint would be good too.

Ingredients:

15 – 20 spears of asparagus
1 green onion, chopped
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
2 tomatoes, sliced
Few sprigs of parsley, chopped
Olive Lemon Juice Dressing

Directions:

  1. Steam asparagus spears for 5-6 minutes or until asparagus is bright green and tender.
  2. Rinse asparagus under cold water.
  3. Drain thoroughly and transfer to a serving bowl.
  4. Arrange tomatoes in a bowl near the outer edge.
  5. Arrange asparagus in the center.
  6. Drizzle with Lemon/Olive Oil Dressing.
  7. Sprinkle with parsley, pine nuts, green onion and fresh cracked pepper.

Serves 2 – 3
