I had this at a restaurant and loved it so had to try and duplicate it at home. Yummy. Quick and easy. I used a small amount of the mandarin juice in the balsamic mixture. Serve immediately or chill.

Directions

  1. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add asparagus and cook until tender, about 4 minutes. Drain in a colander and immediately immerse in ice water until cold to stop the cooking process. Drain.
  2. Boil balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan until reduced to 1/3 the original amount, about 5 minutes. Pour reduced vinegar into a bowl and whisk olive oil into vinegar; set aside until cool, about 10 minutes. Add asparagus, onion, tomatoes, and olives to vinegar mixture and toss to coat.

I recently had this salad at a conference luncheon. Amazing. Did I miss the step in this recipe where you add in the oranges?

this was a very good salad. This would be a summer favorite.
