    Asparagus Salad

    Advertisements
    Now that it's asparagus season, this is a great way to use it (if you like it)

    Asparagus Salad

    1 bunch asparagus (12-15 stems)
    1 cup tomatoes
    1 medium cucumber
    Onion
    Wine vinegar
    Salad oil
    Sugar to taste


    Remove reedy ends from asparagus and cut into 1-inch pieces. Drop into saucepan of boiling water and blanch for 1-2 minutes or until bright green. Asparagus pieces should be tender-crisp. Immediately drain; set aside.

    Cut tomatoes into fork-size chunks. Cherry tomatoes should be cut in half, grape tomatoes can be left whole.

    Peel cucumber and quarter lengthwise. Remove seeds and cut into fork-size chunks.

    Slice onion into rings (for purple, red or white onions), or cut into fork-size pieces (green).

    Combine all vegetables together in serving bowl. Mix together 1/3 cup salad oil and 3-5 tablespoons wine vinegar. Sprinkle on sugar to taste, starting with about teaspoon, testing to see how much you really want. You can also add salt and pepper, but I think they take away from the flavor of the vegetables.

    Refrigerate before serving; should be eaten on the same day (the asparagus loses its brightness if kept overnight).
