Around same time last year we made a similar recipe by using roasted bell pepper, baby spinach and red wine vinegar (see link below).

Got some local asparagus last week, also had some red bell pepper and fresh home-grown arugula. Then this time we made a few small changes, and salad came out refreshingly delicious.

It only took a few minutes to cook pepper, red onion and asparagus, light dressing combined everything together.

We love goat cheese, but if you are not a fan of it, feel free to use any your favorite creamy-soft cheese instead, such as fresh mozzarella.
