"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!"
