Ingredients and Preparation

Ingredients Measures
Olive oil 2 tablespoons
Balsamic vinegar ½ tablespoon

Dash of salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Asparagus, trimmed ½ bunch
Romaine lettuce, washed, chopped, and dried 4 cups
Corn, no salt added, drained and rinsed 1 (8-ounce) can
Water-packed artichoke hearts, halved ½ cup
Smoked turkey breast, sliced into strips ¼ pound
Small tomatoes, quartered 2

Directions

  1. Whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Refrigerate until the rest of the salad is ready.
