Asparagus & Pea Salad


When the vegetables are plentiful in the garden and at the Farmers Markets it is time to make some wonderful fresh salads. One of my favorite garden to table salads is this delicious Asparagus & Pea salad. This salad is a great side for any meal or would be a fantastic salad for a luncheon. This is a very special salad with a  flavorful Lemon Dressing.

  1. I love fresh peas!! I grew them once. When I was working in the garden I found our young daughter sitting by the peas, eating away!! She loved them raw. Thanks for sharing at the What's for Dinner party!
