Strawberry Asparagus Salad

Springtime is a great time to enjoy the early fruits of the harvest.  I saw a recipe for strawberry asparagus salad and decided it was just the ticket for a springtime salad.  I modify the recipe slightly for my own tastes and it got a good taste rating from the family at dinner.


2 cups strawberries, hulled and diced
2 cups asparagus, sliced and microwaved for 1 minute (microwave is optional)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Mix first two ingredients in a medium size bowl.   If you like your asparagus a little less raw, microwave it for a minute.   In a small bowl, whisk the rest of the ingredients together.  Pour dressing over the strawberry and asparagus mixture.  Chill for 2-3 hours.  Enjoy
