Asparagus salad with yogurt dressing

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Chilling time: 1 hour

1 pound fresh asparagus
1 cup low-fat plain yogurt
2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon minced fresh chives
1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
Dash cayenne pepper
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

Wash and trim asparagus, removing tough ends of stalks. Place asparagus in a microwave-safe dish with a small amount of water, cover, and steam in microwave approximately 5–7 minutes until crisp-tender. Cut cooked asparagus into bite-size pieces, cover, and refrigerate. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients (except cherry tomatoes), cover, and refrigerate at least one hour. Just prior to serving, toss the chilled asparagus with yogurt sauce. Fold in cherry tomato halves.
