Grilled Asparagus And Strawberry Salad

I don’t know what it is about summer, but it makes me want to have treats!

Like ice cream and nachos and slushy drinks.

And I don’t have strong power so I usually end up giving in.

I felt like I needed a detox.

So I made this salad.

It’s inspired by a salad I had at a restaurant in Washington that had spinach, asparagus, avocado and feta in it.

I’m sure bacon would make a delightful addition if you’re so inclined.  I didn’t because I was trying to be less gluttonous.

Grilled Asparagus and strawberry Salad

Serves 1 entrée size

2 cups salad greens (I used a spring mix)

10 asparagus spears, woody parts of stems removed

Olive oil

1/2 avocado, diced

6-8 strawberries, stems removed and sliced

1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled

Your favorite raspberry vinaigrette, to taste

Heat grill or grill pan to medium heat.  Toss asparagus spears in a small drizzle of olive oil.  Grill until tender and lightly marked with grill lines (about 5 minutes).

Put greens, berries, avocado, asparagus, and cheese in a bowl or on a large plate.  Top with desired amount of vinaigrette and toss to combine.
