"It's just one of those salads that was created on a gorgeous summer evening with a bunch of stuff I had in the fridge. Grilled asparagus is tossed with spinach and parmesan cheese. My husband and I love it!" — Heather Hedstrom

I changed alot in this recipe and it turned out sooooo good. I steamed the asparagus, used spring greens salad mix, and parmesean seasoned almond slices, also I added some tomatoes, salt and pepper. OMG it was delicous. I thought only having lemon juice and olive oil as a dressing would be bland, but not at all. Thank You I will defintely be making this again :)
Not enough flavor for my husband and son. I liked it though with the addition of adding salt. leftovers do not get soggy
My daughter and I made this tonight. We added some cooked penne pasta and garlic to it and it was to die for! I am not a big fan of asparagus but my hubby is, so I gave this a shot and the flavors complimented each other so well. This is very elegant too.
I'm happy to be the first to review this recipe "Cookin' Mom"! This salad was lovely, to say the least. Simple, yet certainly elegant enough for guests. I added some garlic powder to the mix and used more parm. The warmth from the asparagus just barely wilted the spinach to perfection. Thanks so much again!
I used just a touch less oil, and added grilled chicken to make it a meal. Toasted the almonds in a saucepan...amazing! I loved this dish:-)
Really good. I couldn't be bothered to fire up the grill just for asparagus, so I did them in a skillet on the stove. Eyeballed the Parm, and added a few cherry tomatoes that needed using up. Lovely combination of flavors. Thanks!
Very simple to prepare. I used arugula but will make it with the baby spinach next time. Nice presentation but would've liked to have had another color in the dish. Used toasted almond slices from Trader Joe's as a timesaver.
I've made this twice now, although I must admit that I didn't measure the ingredients. This is a flexible recipe in which you can easily play around with the amounts of ingredients. I grill about a pound of thin asparagus spears, then chop them and throw them on some spinach or a lettuce & spinach mix to make two main-course salads. I find that it's easier to coat the asparagus with the oil & lemon juice if I put roll it around in a rectangular cake pan. I also tried adding some powdered garlic the second time, and enjoyed the taste. Thanks for sharing, Heather!
