I found a really beautiful and refreshing summer salad over at O&CO. I didn't actually use their products to dress my salad, but it still turned out great!
I didn't have cherry tomatoes so I chopped regular tomatoes, and I grilled my asparagus rather than boiling it. We were already grilling chicken so I figured what the heck. If a bit of char bothers you, go ahead and boil yours. Oh, and I didn't measure anything for this recipe, but I'll give you the estimates of what I think I put in. It's salad, it doesn't need to be perfectly measured unless you're counting points or calories. Which these days I've given up on. I let my WW membership expire again. I'm a yo-yo dieter.
I don't need to tell you to wash your fruits and veggies do I?
