Summertime Asparagus Salad Recipe

asparagus salad |@kitchenabilityI’m always looking for new summery side dishes to bring to picnics and BBQs, or just to enjoy with a weeknight meal at home.

This summer salad is easy, healthy, and delicious. You can either toss the asparagus on the grill, or follow my stove top instructions below. Then, simply mix the asparagus with some fresh garden tomatoes and mozzarella, drizzle some balsamic glaze on top, and… voila!

For more summertime salad ideas, try my Strawberry and Goat Cheese Salad, my Remixed Caprese Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, my Easy Macaroni Salad with Herb Garden Vinaigrette, or my Grilled Watermelon Salad. Yum!
