Crispy fried asparagus salad is a mix of hot breaded asparagus with fresh leaves and a zingy dressing, which makes an impressive salad. This sharing salad works well at a BBQ or buffet; just let people help themselves. It's really worth the extra time and effort to breadcrumb and fry the asparagus because it really makes the salad, with the combo of crispy asparagus and green leaves. Everyone is going to love it!
