We all loved this! Even my 3 year old gobbled up the chicken, and he is PICKY! My asparagus lacked much to be desired when I finally got around to using them, so I substituted those for some steamed string beans (that I had chilled before serving), and the salad was still awesome! Loved every bit of it!

This was fantastic!! I chilled the chicken and asparagus before assembling the salad. A definite keeper for the family. We especially loved the dressing -- YUMMY!

This looks like it would feed a LOT more than 4 people! 1 1/2 lbs of asparagus, 6 oz of Feta and 1 1/2 lbs of salad mix is a LOT of food... along with everything else... 3 chicken breasts is more than 3 oz per person which is a good thing as I am thinking of serving it to 3 dozen women for lunch in a couple weeks! It sounds delicious! Now to figure out just how much of everything I will need.
