Super easy and fresh, this is a perfect dish for spring, but also translates well to outdoor cooking in the summer.Farideh Sadeghin

Sometimes you have a meal all planned out—or you're not planning on cooking at all—and then you spy an ingredient at the market that looks so good you can't leave without it. So it was with this asparagus salad, which I put together after coming across some gorgeous white and green asparagus at my local bodega. Super easy and fresh, it's a perfect dish for spring, but also translates well to outdoor cooking in the summer. Serve it on its own or with grilled fish. Farideh Sadeghin, test kitchen director
