Reviews for Salami Asparagus Salad
"So glad I finally got around to trying this recipe! It is just perfect! Love all the flavors - they go so well together! And it's pretty to look at as well... Thanks, S&D!"
"I got this recipe out of TOH Mag in 2008 and have made this over and over again. It is delicious! I never thought of using asparagus in a salad before, and I wouldn't change a thing. I usually make a double batch and take it for lunches. I do sometimes omit the onions. I can't wait for spring with the availability of fresh asparagus!"
