Asparagus, Apple and Chicken Salad


This cool, colorful salad is a palate-pleaser. Apples and asparagus seem an unlikely match, but they form a terrific trio with chicken. I make this salad quite often while asparagus is in season. — Nancy Horsburgh, Everett, Ontario
3 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 25 min.
Ingredients


1 cup cut fresh asparagus (1-inch pieces)
2 tablespoons cider vinegar

1/2 cup diced red apple
