Roasted Asparagus Potato Salad – SRC

Roasted Asparagus Potato Salad

I realize it isn’t summer yet.  Heck, it’s barely spring.  In the 80s here this week, snowing in other parts of the country.  So, how about we make the best of the weather with the best of spring and summer all rolled into one fabulous salad? The asparagus at the market is just perfect.  And I LOVE asparagus.  I realize not everyone does, but when I saw this recipe in my Secret Recipe Club partner’s blog, I knew I had found the perfect dish for a springtime picnic.  For those of us enjoying those spring temps now, go on out and make this and go on that picnic pronto!  For those who still have snow on the ground, just look what you have to look forward to!  In fact, go ahead and make this and serve it at your next meal.  Just to get you in the mood. But wait, before you run off, check out my partner’s blog, A Spoonful of Thyme, and all the rest of the fabulous recipes that Kate has on her blog.  Just for a teaser or two . . .  Sweet Mustard Shrimp, Capellini with Shrimp and Creamy Tomato Sauce,  and her Tequila Lime Chicken.  And I’ve already decided that MY next recipe of Kate’s is her German Potato Salad.  If one potato salad is fabulous, then the second one must be out of this world, right?!?!  I just LOVE her personal philosophy.  “I truly believe that there is always “thyme” to cook and sit down as a family for the evening meal. Cooking is a wonderful way to bring family and friends together to enjoy food and each other. With a good recipe and “a spoonful of thyme” wonderful things can happen!” Thanks, Kate, for a wonderful recipe!!  I loved getting to know you and your blog.
