Vegan Recipe: Roasted Asparagus Spring Salad

Asparagus just screams spring to me; even though it isn't officially here yet we are starting to get the produce in markets. I love to buy bunches of asparagus this time of year when they are cheap and affordable. This salad is absolutely delicious and takes 10 minutes to prepare!

1. Preheat your oven to 500 F. Lightly coat a cookie sheet with olive oil. Brush the asparagus with oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Place in the oven and roast for 8 minutes. (Side note: the asparagus just roasted can stand on its own as a side)
2. Let the asparagus cool to room temperature or colder if you prefer.
3. Whisk together all of the ingredients for the dressing. Toss with mixed greens to coat.
4. Lay a small mound of mixed greens with dressing. Top with some of the asparagus, 3-5 pieces. Sprinkle with gomasio or plain sesame seeds. Enjoy

Serves 4 with leftover asparagus to nibble on.
