Steamed asparagus with a apple cider vinaigrette, yum!I get so happy this time of the year when I start to see sales on all sorts of vegetables and fruits that are beginning to come into season in my area. Spring will be here soon! I am very excited for spring to be here and to get started on this year’s vegetable garden.One thing I will not be growing in my backyard garden is asparagus, but I wish I could! From my research, they need quite a large area and also quite a lot of patience as they take a few years to be able to harvest.Luckily, I get to enjoy other’s harvests of asparagus! This Asparagus Salad uses steamed asparagus, chilled, with a homemade apple cider vinaigrette. For best results, allow the ingredients in the vinaigrette to combine well overnight in the refrigerator. Drizzle the dressing over the asparagus just before serving!Recipe PrintAsparagus SaladThis easy Asparagus Salad is so delicious! Steamed asparagus with a apple cider vinaigrette, yum!
