Asparagus, Bacon, & Egg SaladIf you purchased some fresh spring asparagus from your local farmer’s market, consider turning some into a salad. Blanching the asparagus makes it tender-crisp, and retains the vibrant green color.

Zesty Asian-Style VinaigretteThe holy trinity of most Asian cuisines is ginger, garlic, and scallions. They are the building blocks for this sensational salad dressing. The honey and soy sauce give it an earthy sweetness, while the rice vinegar provides a satisfying tang. Instead of olive oil, this vinaigrette calls for both sesame and canola oil. Serve it with an Asian-style salad, or drizzle it over a fresh melon.

Peach Dreams VinaigretteJust because a salad dressing has sweet fruity notes does not mean it is only for fruit salads.
