  1. Preheat an oven to 430 degrees F (225 degrees C).
  2. Toss the asparagus, tomatoes, and olive oil together in a bowl until the vegetables are evenly coated; season with salt and pepper. Pour into a baking dish; sprinkle 1 minced clove of garlic over the mixture.
  3. Roast in the preheated oven until tender, about 9 minutes. Set aside to cool. Cut the asparagus into 2 inch pieces.
  4. Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels, reserving 2 tablespoons of the bacon drippings in the skillet. Add the crabmeat to the hot bacon drippings and cook until warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a large mixing bowl; add the asparagus, tomatoes, and hearts of palm.
  5. Whisk the lemon juice, olive oil, and 1 minced clove garlic together in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Sprinkle the bacon over the salad just before serving.

Super easy to make and delicious! It makes a lot though. I made it just for my boyfriend and I and ended up taking most of it to work. My coworkers polished it off and raved about how good it ...

The directions were hard to follow. DO NOT put the tomatoes in the oven with the asparagus, unless you want really mushy tomatoes. I modified this and added cilantro, the juice of a whole ...

Something different to try with asparagus which I like, but over all it just didn't work for me with the combination of ingredients. I might try leaving the bacon out next time.

outstanding recipe!! Thanks for sharing!

Keeper alert! I loved this salad, even with the imitation crab. The only change I made was to cook the bacon in the microwave, so I didn't have any bacon fat to warm the "crab" meat, and hones...

Hubby and I both liked it a lot. I thought it needed a little more zing to the dressing, or maybe just more dressing. We ate it as an entree for dinner and then lunch the next day. I didn't sa...
