asparagus - cut into 1-inch pieces, cooked and drained
1 (4 ounce) container
green onion, diced
If you don't like lots of sauce double the veggies or use 1/2 the sauce.
This was not for me. Maybe I put too much of the dressing, but it was too bitter for my taste.
Made this as a side to last night's dinner and it's definetely a keeper. A delicious mix of flavors. I agree with most - to half the first 5 ingredients for the dressing - but no other changes are necessary. Deserves all 5 stars!
My husband sauteed the asparagus in olive oil with two cloves of garlic and that was fantastic. I didn't have any feta so my family used shredded cheddar and that worked fine although I can't wait to try it with feta. And, I hate cilantro so I didn't like the flavor it gave the dish. So, next time and oh yeah... there will be a next time, I'll leave out the cilantro.
This is good. I ended up using goat cheese instead of feta (the idea of feta in this freaked me out a little and I didn't have any anyway). I almost think the salad would have been best without any cheese at all, but I guess that would defeat the recipe title. It WAS good, thanks! :)
Very good! We agree that the recipe makes too much dressing, so I cut it in half...also we omitted the cilantro, and it was very tasty and healthy with light feta!
Summer salad or not, I made this in the dead of winter and loved it. But I too think the dressing is a bit much so scale it back. I also tossed in a few black olives because I love them. We had it with (indoor grilled) salmon. Made the "minus 40 with windchill" we had last night fade into the background!
This was really good. There was a little too much dressing for my taste though. I think next time I will halve the dressing.
