As an adult I have come around to most vegetables I despised as a kid. Tomatoes, Zucchini, Mushrooms…we have found a way to love each other a new. But Asparagus was left out in the cold. I really wanted to like them! Of all vegetables they bring back memories of the Jolly Green Giant the most. There was a glimmer of hope for these tiny trees when I happened upon this salad.
