  1. Not only does this look delicious but beautiful as well! I am so glad I have all the ingredients at home. This will be at our holiday table this week.
    Thanks for sharing it at the Real Food Holidays Blog Carnival!

    • It really is a pretty dish. You can prepare much of it ahead of time and assemble it at the last minute which is helpful for a holiday dinner.

  2. A PS to my response…When I made the recipe I cooked extra asparagus and prepared extra dressing and refrigerated both.
    The next day I cooked some quinoa and added the asparagus, feta, toasted pine nuts, chopped parsley and mint, and the dressing – mixed everything, and had a variation on your great recipe.

  3. Our local New Jersey asparagus is now making an appearance in all the markets, so I decided to try your asparagus salad recipe with all the trimmings (some of my favorite things). YUMMY! The ingredients are great with the zesty
    dressing. How can I convince the Salzmans to move to the “Garden State?” Pamela, you already have so many fans here who would love to take your classes (like me, a Jersey girl). What do you think? Remember, you were born in NJ!

    • I do have a soft spot for New Jersey since I was born there, but it’s hard to give up all this great So Cal produce and weather!

    • Terrific! I actually make this salad all spring and summer — it’s not just for Easter :).

  4. Just celebrated our Greek Easter with the traditional Lamb and potatoes and as a side dish, I did your asparagus recipe, everyone loved it!

    • I agree! You’ll have to check out the farro recipe — it’s delish. But one of my favorite ways of using this dressing is on steamed, boiled or grilled potatoes with or without green beans, with or without feta and walnuts. I mentioned a couple more complementary vegetables in the blog. You pretty much can’t go wrong with a winner!

  5. I made this salad on Easter and it was an overwhelming hit with everyone! The combination of flavors and the yummy dressing is a real winner! Keep those recipes and tips coming…

  6. I used chopped pecans instead of walnuts (all I had on hand) and it was still delicious! The dressing is also great over spinach!

  7. I made this dish this weekend. It was very easy to follow the recipe and it was very good. My guests wanted the recipe. I gave them your amazing website instead. Because of you I am a better cooker. My family does not dread dinner anymore! Thank you Pamela!
