Like many people, I have been planning just how many of the salads I can make on Mark Bittman's recent list of 101 Summer Salads (Kelly of Sass and Veracity is going to make them ALL). I went through the list several times and highlighted the salads I wanted to make immediately. This was one of the first and it was especially helpful that I had a bunch of asparagus in my refrigerator that was in danger of going bad. While you're shaving the asparagus, boil the eggs and you have delicious dish in no time. It's fresh and filling and definitely will not weigh you down. This is definitely a good recipe to have on hand as I start my quest of looking awesome by my 30th birthday. Wish me luck!!
Just a note, I am without internet connection at home all week so please bare with me in replying to comments, etc.
