“For many years, we have been blessed with an asparagus bed that has grown the most sweet and savory asparagus we have ever tasted. The only problem, is that we usually have it every day while it continues to grow and prosper. I use this salad on a warmish night, when all you can smell is the freshness of Spring.”
