This dish made for a nice healthy dinner. As you’ll see in the next few posts, I’ve been using my grill pan a lot lately. I love grilled asparagus and the dressing combination with the spinach made for a very tasty and filling main dish for me. Thanks Fat Free Vegan Kitchen.

1 bunch asparagus – tough ends snapped off
4 ounces baby spinach
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts

Smoked Paprika Salad Dressing

2 T. water
2 T. lemon juice
1 t. miso
1 T. mayo
1 T. white wine vinegar
1 t. garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
small amount of sweetener to taste

Clean asparagus and spinach and get the asparagus grilling on the grill pan. Spray a little olive oil on the pan first and then grill on medium heat for 5 to 8 minutes. While grilling, make the dressing. I put all the ingredients into a small container with a lid and shook it to mix. In a big bowl, toss the spinach with a bit of dressing and plate. Top with grilled and seasoned (salt/pepper) asparagus and a handful of walnuts. Enjoy.

Notes: You will have left over asparagus, which is great in eggs in the morning or on other salads.

Servings: 2 salad servings
