Blue Cheese & Asparagus Salad
16 mins (prep 15, cooking 1)
7 ingredients
4-6 servings
Found this recipe on the back of a box of blue cheese and decided to try it. It's a nice blend of flavors and really sets off the asparagus and simple to make. Love that the asparagus is not over cooked and so fresh tasting;I guessed at the size can of mandarin oranges as don't have it handy. I used a small can as didn't want it to sweet - but there's a larger one if you prefer. I did add a teaspoon of balsamic vinager to mine for a little bit of bite, but since the original recipe did not call for it I left it out. Hope you like it.
