Warm Salad or a quick Side Dish

Asparagus with Garlic and Cherry Tomatoes

I love Asparagus, delicious and healthy and there are many ways to cook it. You can grill it, saute, steam or blanch, it always tastes excellent. So add a dose of health to your daily diet with my Asparagus and Cherry tomato hash.

This quick Asparagus recipe can be an excellent side dish which will go perfect with grilled meats or fried rice. But I in fact love to enjoy it as warm lunch salad.

Note: Always buy firm bunch of asparagus. Grocery stores usually submerge it in water to keep the stems fresh longer.

Savita's Notes:
To keep Asparagus fresh longer in refrigerator, submerge stems in 1/2 inch water. Just cut 1/2 inch hard stems from bottom and then let the asparagus bunch stand in water. Change water everyday until you decide to use it.
