I know this isn't real high in protein but it sounded good. You could always add some type of protein in it.

Asparagus Tomato Salad

6 servings

1 lb fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

1 small zucchini, halved and cut into 1/4-inch slices

1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes

1/4 cup sliced green onions

1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

3 Tbsp olive oil

2 Tbsp red wine vinegar

1 garlic clove, minced

1/4 tsp seasoned salt

1/4 tsp Dijon mustard

1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, optional

2 Tbsp sunflower kernels, toasted, optional

Place the asparagus and zucchini in a steamer basket; place in a saucepan over 1-inch of water. Bring to a boil, cover and steam for 2 minutes. Rinse in cold water.

In a large bowl, combine the asparagus, zucchini, tomatoes, onions and parsley. In a small bowl, whisk the oil, vinegar, garlic, seasoned salt and mustard. Pour over the asparagus mixture and toss to coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and sunflower kernels, if desired.
