Prepare the Dressing:


Prepare the Salad: 

  1. To blanch the asparagus, bring a pot filled with at least 4 inches of water to a boil. 
  2. Carefully add the cut asparagus to the boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. 
  3. Immediately, transfer the blanched asparagus to a bowl filled with ice cold water for 1 minute. 
  4. Then, place the cold asparagus onto paper towels to dry. 
  5. Next, in a large bowl, combine all the salad ingredients: sliced cucumber, halved tomatoes (both kinds), blanched asparagus, olives, avocado and beets. 
  6. Mix in the cooked & cooled croutons. 
  7. Before serving, drizzle ¾ of the dressing over the salad and toss until all ingredients are coated in the dressing. Taste and add more dressing if needed. Enjoy!
