I call this Asparagus Salad.
I love steamed asparagus in the summer time and I love putting it on the grill too!
In this recipe I steamed it but I suppose you could grill it if you wish.
1. Clean and snip ends of asparagus as usual.
2. Steam asparagus.
3. Cut each asparagus stalk into thirds.
4. Add to large mixing bowl
5. Cut up tomato, cucumbers, and black olives and add to mixing bowl.
6. Toss in Balsamic Vinaigrette.
7. Let chill.
I came up with this recipe last summer and when I take it to picnics I get so many compliments on it. It is a great alternative to the traditional Macaroni on Pasta salads.
Since this recipe is my original creation, I am going to submit it to the Fit Approach recipe contest for their cookbook. Do you think it has a chance of getting accepted?
What are some of your alternative salad dishes?
