Asparagus with Almonds and Yogurt Dressing

I need more vegetables in my life, plain and simple.  I miss the days last spring when I could leisurely stroll through a farmer’s market.  Right now, I feel like I am racing to the local produce market between other errands, and it’s left me a bit uninspired.  But I was determined not to miss asparagus season entirely, so I made sure to pick up a bunch this week.  Smitten Kitchen has never steered me wrong when it comes to asparagus (if you need proof, look here and don’t blame me when you eat a whole pizza.)

I decided to try her latest recipe, Asparagus with Almonds and Yogurt Dressing.  Ignore the fact that I used sliced almonds instead of whole, and my yogurt dressing ended up pinkish from the paprika.  Also ignore the fact that I used a patterned plate for this busy dish, making it hard on the eyes.  But don’t ignore the fact that there’s a glass of wine on the table, because it went very well with this delicious salad.  I liked the combination of flavors here, and I only wish that there was more asparagus.  Better buy two bunches next week!
