Tomato and Asparagus Salad

I created this recipe years ago. I wanted to serve a cold dish in place of a hot vegetable at a dinner we were having. I've found most everyone likes asparagus prepared this way.

Directions Combine the water and onion powder; bring to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook 3-5 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender and bright green. Drain; cool to room temperature....


Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 8 to 16 lettuce leaves
  • 2 to 3 large tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • DRESSING:
  • 1/2 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ketchup
  • Pepper to taste
