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).


Directions: 


* 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!
