"Salads are something that have to be outstanding to appeal to picky ol' me...and this one certainly does. Though I'm always trying salad recipes, the file I have of ones that made the "outstanding" grade is pretty small. I used a huge clove of garlic in the dressing, and absolutely loved the garlicky goodness that permeated the dish. This is so different from the typical lettuce based salad......delicious and flavorful and wonderful!"

"I love this recipe. I love chilled, crisp asparagus in salads, and I love asparagus with tomatoes. I am always looking for different salads to take for my lunch to help me stay on track with healthy eating, and this recipe is a keeper."
