Asparagus Citrus Salad

2012 March 14

One of the best things about the onset of spring  is the variety of salads just waiting to be created.  This one is lovely- the bright green of the asparagus,  the citrus sweetness of tangerine and a hint of sesame make it a perfect pairing for an asian-themed meal. You could also just serve it with rice and grilled chicken- great for dinner.

 I think next time I would add a small spoonful of dijon mustard to the dressing, cut the asparagus a bit smaller so they could be coated more evenly with dressing, and remove the membrane from the tangerine sections. I might even use a touch of the zest in the dressing.

    What a visually stunning salad! And I think citrus pairs so beautifully with asparagus, too. I do hope you are submitting this to the SOS Kitchen Challenge this month–?? :D
