  • Place asparagus in microwaveable casserole. Add water; cover. Microwave on HIGH 3 min. or until asparagus is crisp-tender. Rinse with additional cold water; drain.
  • Toss asparagus with salad greens, peas, tomatoes, basil and dressing in large bowl.
  • Spoon onto serving plates; top with cheese and beans.

Storing Asparagus

To store asparagus, stand fresh spears upright in a container filled with about 1 inch of water. Cover loosely with a plastic bag and refrigerate. Or, store in refrigerator with a damp paper towel wrapped around base of stalks and cover loosely with a plastic bag. Asparagus is best when cooked the day it is purchased, but will keep up to 3 or 4 days. Wash just before using.

Trimming Fresh Asparagus

Asparagus spears snap off naturally where they are tough. Simply bend the spear near the bottom end and it will break off at the right point. Or, remove an inch or so of the "woody" portion off the bottom of the stalks with a sharp knife.
