Ingredients

Salad:

  • 1 bunch asparagus, tough ends trimmed, chopped into 1-inch pieces (10oz)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved (5 oz)
  • 1/4 cup red onions, diced (1 oz)

Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Place the asparagus in a microwave-safe bowl. Add a tablespoon of water. Cover and microwave 5 minutes. Stir and microwave 2 more minutes, until just tender. Drain into a serving bowl and allow to cool, about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, chop the tomatoes and the onion. Place the dressing ingredients in a small jar, seal well and shake until well-blended.
  • Add the tomatoes and the onion to the serving bowl. Pour the dressing on top and gently mix. 
  • Serve the tomato asparagus salad immediately, or cover and keep in the fridge until ready to serve, but no longer than 2 hours. Remove from fridge 15 minutes before serving and toss again.
