There is something so refreshing about a crisp salad on a warm spring day. It feels good to eat a light and refreshing meal after the heavy, hearty dishes of winter. This can either be a starter or a light lunch.

Step 1

In mixing bowl, add vinegar, mustard, shallot, lemon zest, salt, pepper, dill, and chives. Slowly whisk in olive oil. Then whisk in yogurt and refrigerate.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 375°. Place cubed bread on sheet pan and toast until golden brown, flipping bread half way through to toast evenly (about 8-10 minutes). In a large pot, bring water, seasoned with salt, to a boil. Add Asparagus and cook until tender (about 4-5 minutes). Remove asparagus and plunge into ice water to stop asparagus from cooking. Slice asparagus in thirds.
