I found this recipe as I was looking for a side salad for a dinner. It sounded very spring like and knew I could easily find fresh asparagus and strawberries at the farmers market.
I made this a few hours before dinner to allow to marinate. The kids just picked out the sweetened strawberries and a few asparagus. My husband and I liked it but thought it would be a great brunch side salad. I served it with grilled tuna steaks which was light but the strawberries made it too sweet for dinner.
2 cups of blanched fresh asparagus cut into pieces
2 cups of sliced strawberries.
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tbs honey
In a large bowl toss asparagus and strawberries together. In a small bowl, combine dressing ingredients. Pour dressing over salad; toss. Chill before serving.
Another sign up summer is marinated cucumbers. I picked my first cucumber this weekend and thought share that post with you again.
Speaking of brunches I just wanted to show this cute table decoration made with chocolate suckers and a $1 planter found at target. Simply fill the container with silk flower oasis and cover with shredded paper. Put your suckers in and you have a party favor and centerpiece.
