Is This Salad Recipe Healthy?

Asparagus, Tomato, and Feta Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe

This asparagus, tomato, and feta salad is not only delicious but also easy to make. Here’s how you can prepare it:

Ingredients:

For the Vinaigrette:

  • 6 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Salad:

  • 2 lbs. fresh asparagus, medium thickness with tough ends removed, diced to 2-in
  • 1 (10.5 oz.) pkg. grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2/3 cup chopped walnuts (candied walnuts for extra crunch and flavor)
  • 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled

Directions:

  1. For the vinaigrette, add vinegar to a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and reduce by half, about 3 minutes. Pour into a jar or bowl and add all remaining ingredients. Set aside.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add asparagus and boil until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain and immediately transfer to a bowl of ice water. Let rest for about 10 minutes, then drain well.
  3. Transfer asparagus to a larger bowl and add tomatoes, walnuts, and feta. Drizzle with vinaigrette and toss lightly. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
