Cuisine American
Prep Time 20 minutes
Servings 2


  • 6 cups spring lettuce mix
  • 16 asparagus spears tough ends removed
  • 1 cup fresh cherries pitted and halved
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Heat a non-stick pan over medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Add the asparagus spears and whole walnuts. Cook, tossing occasionally until asparagus is starting to brown, 5 - 7 minutes. Remove from heat.

  2. In a small jar, whisk together the sour cream, brown sugar, lemon juice, poppy seeds and salt.

  3. In a large bowl, toss together the cooked asparagus and walnuts, cherries and feta cheese with the spring mix lettuce. Top with the dressing. I had some dressing leftover for another day.
