This cool, colorful salad is a palate-pleaser. Apples and asparagus seem an unlikely match, but they form a terrific trio with chicken. I make this salad quite often while asparagus is in season. — Nancy Horsburgh, Everett, Ontario

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cut fresh asparagus (1-inch pieces)
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup cubed cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup diced apple
