Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut on the bias into 3 pieces each
  • 8 ounces baby heirloom tomatoes, halved, or mixed colored cherry tomatoes

Vinaigrette

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1 tablespoon champagne vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic and Herb Seasoning Blend or your favorite blend
  • 1 pinch erythritol or sugar

Instructions

  • Trim and cut the asparagus and place in a microwaveable dish with 1 tablespoon of water. Cover with cling film and microwave for 2 1/2 minutes, depending on your microwave. Pour a large glass full of ice and water into the bowl and toss the asparagus until cool. OR plunge the asparagus into boiling water until it turns bright green and crisp tender. Remove from the pot and place into a bowl of ice water until cool. This sets the color of the asparagus.
  • Halve the tomatoes and place the vegetables into a medium bowl
  • Mince the garlic and shallot and place into a small mason jar or into a small bowl. Add the other ingredients and shake the jar or mix with a small whisk. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  • Toss the vegetables with the dressing and serve.
