Strawberry Asparagus Salad

Strawberry Asparagus Salad

Spring in a bowl, that’s what we got here. As a kid, asparagus season was met with dread. Maybe Mom should have tried serving it raw instead over cooked. I had no idea you could eat asparagus raw until I was an adult, well into my 30’s. Wasted time, I tell ya. Raw asparagus has a sweet gentle taste compared to its cooked form (of course, I like the cooked for now as well, as long as it’s not overcooked).

The dressing will work just fine if you only heat it enough to incorporate the honey. The picture shows it that way, I was too hungry to wait for it to reduce. It’s much better if you can reduce it some, but it’s tasty either way. Continue reading →

Smoked Salmon & Spinach Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing

Smoked Salmon and Spinach Salad with Honey Mustard DressingIt’s really pretty hard to cook for one person. You make a recipe and then you have leftovers for far too long. I blame my absence on using up what I already had around, not to many recipes being used. That and I have been avoiding my computer. We have a tendency to spend far too much time together, much of it not quality time. There are only so many hours people should spend looking at cat pictures. It’s totally me and not it, but that doesn’t change things. Also, I haven’t been eating as many salads as I should have. I admit it, I fell of the wagon.

This one is pretty easy and it helped use up some random ingredients from the fridge. I love honey mustard dressing but the kind from the store has far too many calories. This is a much lighter version, although, I might go with more mustard next time. Hope you like it! Continue reading →
