We had this salad for dinner last night and it was really good!....A great meal for these hot summer nights!

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.

1 cup cut fresh asparagus (1-inch pieces)
