Asparagus salad with blue cheese dressing

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
28 Asparagus spears -- trimmed
½ cup Nonfat yogurt
1 tablespoon Blue cheese -- crumbled
¼ cup Lemon juice
1 tablespoon Chives
1 Clove garlic -- peeled and
Minced
2 Tomatoes -- cored and
Wedged
Salt and pepper -- to taste
½ cup Fennel

Bring water to the boil in the bottom of a steamer. Fit the baket into the steamer. Steam the asparagus over medium high heat for about 6 minutes, until bright green and tender. Remove the steamer from the heat and let the asparagus cool.

Combine the yogurt and blue cheese in a small saucepan. Warm over low heat for 1 to 2 minutes, whisking constantly, just until the blue cheese has melted. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the lemon juice, chives and garlic. Arrange the asparagus in the centrer of a serving plate and ring with the tomato wedges. Drizzle the yogurt dressing over the asparagus.

Sprinkle with the salt and pepper and garnish with the fennel.
