Green Bean and Asparagus Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 50
Very tasty salad of roasted asparagus and green beans. I got the inspiration when I was indecisive about choosing between the two vegetables for a side dish. Roasting the vegetables brings out their great flavor and the addition of cherry tomatoes, onion, and fresh parsley give it a lovely color.

Rating: 5 stars 2

What makes this cold green bean salad so good is that the beans marinate while they are still warm--that way the beans soak up the vinaigrette and become more flavorful.
