Asparagus Salad

Asparagus Salad

1 pound asparagus
1/2 cup finely diced red onion
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved (optional)
1/2 cup crumbled Bleu cheese

For the dressing:
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons champagne or white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 teaspoon sugar
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Steam or boil asparagus 2 about minutes depending on thickness until tender crisp. Plunge into ice water to stop the cooking. Remove from ice water and pat dry.

In a jar with a lid, combine all the ingredients for the dressing and shake well. Place the asparagus on a serving plate. Sprinkle tomatoes, onion and bleu cheese on top. Drizzle some of the dressing on top of salad. Extra dressing keeps in the fridge for about 5 days.
