I love when asparagus starts appearing in the market.  Asparagus is a sure sign that spring is on it's way.  And I love so many recipes that use asparagus.   I did a post last year about how to prepare it.  As my readers know I love roasting most veggies, and Asparagus is no exception.  Today I made a favorite salad.  I've had so many request for this particular salad that I decided to post it.  Now is the perfect time to try this recipe.  I'm positive you'll love it too.
