Asparagus is one of our favorite spring time veggies.  It’s fun to roast and broil and can always make a simple dinner better.  When I came across some fun asparagus salads, I was excited to try them because I figured Brady would be on board as well!  

It’s so simple to make and goes great with anything from grilled chicken to tofu or shrimp!
