Tender green asparagus and juicy red strawberries star in this colorful salad, which I often make for spring luncheons and showers. It tastes as terrific as it looks! —Molly Payne, Buffalo, Minnesota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 25, 2011

I found this recipe in one of my Taste of Home cookbooks and decided to give it a try for Easter. My family loved it!! My only regret was not making a double batch so everyone could enjoy it. They want me to make it next week for another family event. This recipe was also really easy and quick to make (my favorite kind). I substitued splenda for the sugar which worked great.
