Asparagus and Tomato Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
Our house is full of asparagus "fans"—my husband, our daughter and I can't get enough of it! My recipe is one I created years ago. I wanted to serve a cold dish in place of a hot vegetable at a dinner we were having for family and friends, and this salad was the result. I've found people who don't normally care for asparagus enjoy it prepared this way.
