Our asparagus is starting to emerge from the ground!
Asparagus is labor-intensive to get started, but once it's established, it is low maintenance and prolific. If you have a nice, sunny spot in your yard (and you adore asparagus like I do), you should look into growing it.
As with most foods, fresh asparagus from your own garden is worlds different from what you buy in the store from half a world away.
I love to roast asparagus and use it in this gorgeous salad.
If I'm cooking for just Joe and myself, I mix the salad all together. If we're cooking for others (as we will be for Easter dinner at our house this Sunday), I serve the dressing on the side.
