Asparagus Summer Salad

As you will quickly learn...I love to cook, but even more...I love to eat!  Something about different textures and flavors exploding in my mouth is akin to something like a slice of Heaven!  I digress...

As part of my weight-loss journey, I am focusing on developing tasty, FILLING recipes that don't leave me feeling deprived.  Let me tell you...there is nothing worse than a fat girl being deprived of food...all will feel the wrath of my rumbling belly!  Thankfully, I love FOOD (healthy food included) so coming up with recipes to fit my new lifestyle hasn't been too difficult.  Today's lunch: Asparagus Summer Salad

3 oz spring mix
2 oz baby kale
1/3 oz homemade roasted almonds, roughly chopped
4 oz raw asparagus, ends discarded
4 oz grilled chicken breast
2-3 large strawberries, sliced
1 hard boiled egg, diced (optional)
2T homemade reduced fat honey mustard dressing (recipe below)
