Green Bean and Asparagus Salad

Recipe by  

"Very tasty salad of roasted asparagus and green beans. I got the inspiration when I was indecisive about choosing between the two vegetables for a side dish. Roasting the vegetables brings out their great flavor and the addition of cherry tomatoes, onion, and fresh parsley give it a lovely color."

I made this salad for an extended family Father's Day dinner and it was liked by people of all ages. The number of compliments was impressive. The only change I made to the recipe was to roast the red onion (add it to the roasting mix at the same time as the asparagus), add a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar to the mixture, and roast the vegetables (green beans, red onion, and asparagus) for at least 30 minutes. With the roasting time in the original recipe, the veggies were too hard for easy eating.

I liked this but hubby not so much. He didn't care for the raw tomatoes and red onion. I liked it.... go figure!

Very good and pretty to serve. I used the frozen green beans from Costo instead of fresh. Just watch the texture of beans and asparagus until it is to your liking. Will make again.

Used this for Easter. It was a hit. We added all the vegetables - tomatoes and onions - at the same time as the asparagus. It was great!!

Wonderfully simple to make and great recipe. It doesn't have a lot of flavors in it, but it doesn't need it. I made just as written, except I grilled instead of using the oven. I will definitely make this again. Thank you Sarah for a nice recipe.

This was great! My hubby can take or leave asparagus, but even he thought this was a hit. I had to use frozen asparagus spears but it didn't seem to hurt. It it was really easy to make too. We will definitely make this again.
