Asparagus can be cooked so many different ways and take on numerous flavor combinations. It can be eaten fresh or grilled, steamed, broiled, baked, and even fried.
Nutritionally, asparagus is low in calories and high in Vitamins A, C, K, and E. It is considered a heart-healthy vegetable and aids in blood clotting due to its high K content.
This recipe can be made a day ahead and stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. If the salad seems dry, try sprinkling it with a little extra lemon juice, vinegar and a small amount of sesame oil.
My birthday has come and gone, Halloween is just a few weeks away and, in the blink of an eye, it will be the Holidays!
I invite you to give this festive red-and-green recipe a test run before the upcoming season and recommend serving it as a main/side dish or when you are beckoned to a holiday event.
Super yummy and extremely easy!
I love tomatoes. Especially during the late summer months when they taste absolutely amazing. Be careful not to overcook this dish. I suggest even cooking the pasta to an al dente texture. This dish is great hot or cold and can be served as a main dish or hardy side dish.
