Warm Potato and Asparagus Salad

potato asparagus final 1

A salad that serves as a full healthy meal along with toast. I have often made it for dinner and it goes really well with bread.

I like to make a simple non spicy version so that my little one can also enjoy. You may add some more zing to it by adding some chilli flakes or pepper powder to the mustard dressing.

Make it for meal time or evening snack and enjoy the warm salad with all its nutritional benefits.
