Good Friends Good Food - Asparagus Salad

This week in our group we are focusing on asparagus .   It was Ulrike’s choice.  We love asparagus and there were lots of creative options out there from which to choose.  I decided to go with a roasted asparagus salad topped with a Caesar like dressing.  Due to allergies I had to leave out the anchovy paste.  Mine tasted a bit more like buttermilk dressing than Caesar but was still delicious. It was easy to prepare and delicious to eat! Recipe I used about a pound of fresh asparagus and roasted it in the oven at 350 degrees until fork tender.  Took about 20 minutes.  While that was roasting I prepared the dressing. Dressing: 1/3 cup olive oil 1/3 squeezed lemon 4 garlic cloves minced 4 T greek yogurt 2 T parmesan 1 T dijon mustard 2 tsp red wine vinegar 1 tsp anchovy paste 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper Top roasted asparagus with dressing, shaved parmesan and sourdough croutons.  Enjoy!
