It's Spring, Get Cooking

A huge display of Asparagus at the Market
When asparagus shows up to market it signals that Spring has arrived and that Summer foods are right around the corner. This weekend I made an oven roasted chicken and grilled vegetable salad using plenty of asparagus.

Spring Time Chicken & Grilled Vegetable Salad
1 whole chicken, cooked
1 bunch asparagus
1 yellow onion, sliced into thick rings
1 fennel bulb, sliced thick
1 handful baby arugula
1 dash extra virgin olive oil
1 dash champagne vinegar

1. Season and roast a whole chicken; shred meat after it's cooled.
2. Season vegetables and drizzle with olive oil.
3. Grill till tender, slice into bite size pieces.
4. Toss all ingredients well, adjust seasoning if necessary.

Yield = 4-6
