Asian Spring Salad with Shrimp


Val made this fabulous salad for me the other day and I just had to include it in my blog. The  crunch of the almonds, the tang of the pomegranate seeds, the sweet meat of the shrimp, the crisp springtime taste of the asparagus and the sesame, soy and ginger umami of the dressing work so beautifully together it is a feast for the senses  and it is super healthy as well and very filling. This recipe is low-fat, heart healthy and diabetic friendly.
