My husband is a "meat and potatoes" kind of guy, so the first time I made this meatless recipe, he was not thrilled. Once he tried it, he was hooked. Now he asks me to prepare it often. —Cindy Macha, Richmond, Texas
Our grandchildren love roasted asparagus—especially in this refreshing salad. The orange dressing gives it "zing", and sunflower kernels add crunch. I like to make it with my homegrown asparagus.

I have a habit of buying too much asparagus when it’s in season, but it doesn't go to waste! I toss the spears with cherry tomatoes and goat cheese for this side. Be sure to use good quality goat cheese because it makes all the difference.—Holly Battiste, Barrington, New Jersey
