Add lots of color to your plate with this fresh spring recipe for an asparagus salad.

Asparagus Ribbons with Lemon and Goat Cheese Creamy goat cheese crowns a refreshingly bracing salad. Because the asparagus is shaved, it does not have to be cooked. Thick asparagus spears work best when it comes to making ribbons like these.
Source: Cooking Light JULY 2007
Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
Ingredients
   1 pound large asparagus spears, trimmed
   1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
   2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives
   2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
   2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
   1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
   1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
   1/4 teaspoon sugar
   1/4 teaspoon salt
   1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
Preparation
Hold each asparagus spear by the tip end. Shave asparagus into ribbons with a vegetable peeler to measure 3 cups. Reserve asparagus tips for another use. Combine asparagus and tomatoes in a medium bowl.
Combine chives and next 6 ingredients (through 1/4 teaspoon salt), stirring with a whisk. Drizzle over the asparagus mixture, tossing gently to coat. Top with goat cheese.
