Asparagus Tips with Cucumber Vinaigrette #BloggerCLUE

As spring rolls around once more, it is time to start thinking about what to serve at Easter. With all the bright, fresh, crisp colors of the new season we have so much to choose from. Luckily, to help even more, the Blogger C.L.U.E. theme this month is Easter so we’ll get you everything you need to please ol’ Peter Cottontail.

This month I was paired with Wendy from A Day in the Life on the Farm and I had a lovely time looking through her blog. There was so much to choose from, of course. I was on the hunt though for something light, crisp and fresh– so as soon as I saw the Asparagus Tips with Cucumber Vinaigrette– I knew I’d found my post!

Summer Salad of Grilled Chicken over Baby Spinach with Crispy Leeks and Pancetta

 
I know it is common knowledge, but I have to state the obvious–Florida summers can be brutally hot (like, frying pan to the face, hot). This is one of the reasons I look for ways to create fresh, light meals–dinners I can put together with out a lot of fuss or extra heat waves. One of the easiest ways to do that is to make a salad, and I am a big fan of salads (and staying cool). I don’t like to be hot when I eat and I certainly don’t want to eat hot food when I am hot so, I play around with different salads all summer. This one was fast, simple and super flavorful.
