The bright asparagus salad is dressed in a tangy balsamic glace. Pair it with whatever protein you like.
Peel the asparagus and trim off the tough ends.
Prepare an ice bath in a bowl. In a skillet, bring some well salted water to a boil, add the asparagus and simmer until just tender (because the asparagus are peeled, this should take 2 - 3 minutes, do not overcook); immediately remove the asparagus to the ice bath, allow to cool completely, then set on paper towels to drain and dry.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients, mix well. Place the asparagus in a serving dish, toss with the dressing and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Toss again, adjust seasonings and serve cold or at room temperature.
