Another day another asparagus recipe! And another salad recipe. Man, I’m really pumping out these salad recipes. By winter I should be super fit and fine. Or really not because I can’t seem to quit my love of desserts. You know those people who are all “yeah, I don’t really like dessert.” Um, I’m not one of those people. Every day must end with a little something sweet. My favorite is a scoop of ice cream but I’ll also happily eat a few squares of dark chocolate too. Or brownies. Or cake. Or cereal. Or cookies.

You get it. I love sweets. But I love salads too so I like to think it’s a delicate balance.

I’ve talked about my love of roasted asparagus before and this time is no different. While I typically just roast it up regular style for dinner this time I took it’s roasted deliciousness and made it even more flavorful. I made the caesar dressing out of Greek yogurt and I LOVELOVELOVE the tang it brings. This dressing is ready in a few minutes and tastes so crazy good. Don’t skimp on that anchovy paste either. It’s good – I PROMISE!

I once again used my homemade garlic butter croutons to bring a nice crunch element to the dish. They work so well in salads! Plus they are crunchy and buttery and those are 2 of my favorite things when it comes to crunchy snacks.

P.S. I know this roasted asparagus caesar salad recipe says it’s 2 servings but I totally ate this whole thing by myself.
