Arugula Asparagus Pear Salad
Last night I was eyeing the items in my fridge, and I was bored. I usually grab asparagus to steam and serve as a side dish because it's easy. Last night I stared at the asparagus in the fridge and was going to gag if i served it steamed with butter, like I usually do. I needed something to go with steak and cous cous. So, instead, I made a salad with the asparagus! The result was great! I looked up a few salad recipes and came up with this, based on what I had in my fridge/pantry. 1 cup Arugula 1/2 a pear chopped 1/4 cup parmesan cheese 1 cap full(cap from the bottle) of sherry 1 cap full of balsamic vinegar 1 cap full of olive oil 1 tablespoon of grated lemon peel About 10 steamed stalks, chopped, asparagus.
