    Ingredients Measures
    Olive oil 2 tablespoons
    Balsamic vinegar ½ tablespoon
    Dijon mustard ½ teaspoon
    Dash of salt
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    Asparagus, trimmed ½ bunch

    Directions
    1. Whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Refrigerate until the rest of the salad is ready.
    2. Blanch asparagus by dropping it into boiling water for 2 minutes and then placing it in ice water. Once cool, drain and set aside.
    3. Distribute lettuce onto 2 plates (or just use one large salad bowl). Top with the corn, asparagus, artichoke hearts, smoked turkey, and tomatoes. Drizzle with the balsamic dressing.
