Spring means fresh salads...


I was talking to my sister the other day, and she told me about a fantastic salad that she had found on Pinterest that had fresh asparagus, avocado, and cherry tomatoes.  I looked for the recipe and pinned it immediately.  The original recipe is by Something Sweet Something Salty.

The grocery had beautiful asparagus yesterday, so I knew what I had to do.  The three vegetables listed above are the only ingredients except for a simple dressing.  Very easy and so fresh tasting.  We had it tonight with some broiled salmon.

I adjusted the dressing just a smidge and posted the recipe over at What's Cookin' 4 Miles North of Nowhere.

  1. The only asparagus that I can buy in Woolworths is Product of Mexico!

  2. That’s crazy! I mean, what I get is probably from Mexico too, but that’s only a couple of hours away for us. LOL You’re heading into Autumn, can you get it more locally in the Spring? Just curious.

  4. That looks yummy...might even be good with a little grilled chicken added (for my meat-eater hubby). Will definitely be trying SOON!

  7. Looks yummy! I might try that combination with a Whole 30-friendly dressing.

  8. Hi, Pamela! I was sure that the dressing would be Whole 30 compliant, but you made me look into it, and sure enough the Dijon mustard I used had white wine in it. Darn.

  9. Made this tonight to go with some pork chops...way tooooo yummy!!! I know I ate 3/4 of it myself...poor hubby didn't stand a chance. (And he thought it was delish too!)

    I just used regular stone ground mustard (not dijon), and I added a little Mexican crumbling cheese. Soooooo good! So glad you shared the recipe!! We'll DEFINITELY be having this again soon!

  12. That sounds amazing - I've been looking for some lighter meals to cook now the weather is getting warmer, and that salad fits the bill perfectly , particularly along with salmon, as you suggest. Thank you, Kathleen!
