Refreshing Asparagus Salad

Great news - it's almost Friday!! 


Not so great news, it's still hot and humid outside...

Tonight's dinner called for another cold salad variation (mainly so I didn't have to heat up the kitchen and to not have to worry about a whole sink-full of dishes)!

Refreshing Asparagus Salad

Main Ingredients:

*  8 - 10 oz. of Chickpea pasta (we used Penne)

* 1 lb. Asparagus (cut into bite-sized pieces)

* 1 Cup of Cherry Tomatoes, halved

* 1/3 Cup Onions, chopped

Dressing Ingredients: 

* 1/3 Cup Plain Yogurt (Dairy Free or Greek)

* 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice

* 2 Tbsp Olive Oil

* 1 Tbsp Parsley, chopped

* Salt / Pepper to taste

(Please note, if the dressing is too sour, you can add a little honey or sugar to sweeten it).


* Boil the pasta for 10-12 minutes.  Keeping the pasta in the boiling water, add the chopped asparagus and cook for an additional 3 minutes.  

* Then, drain the pasta/asparagus concoction and set aside in a large bowl. 

* Add the tomatoes, onions and all of the whisked-together dressing ingredients and add to the pasta/asparagus mixture. 

* Stir to coat, refrigerate until ready to eat, top with Pepitas (Pumpkin Seeds) and enjoy!
