A Quick Dinner Recipe Perfect For Home Or Picnic

As the weather gets warmer, a cool salad becomes a soothing treat. This quick dinner recipe for Beef Salad With Asparagus and Broccoli is a healthy dish for lunch or dinner. The vegetables are quickly blanched and cooled, then tossed with the beef and a light ginger dressing.

The vegetables and dressing can be prepared ahead and chilled, then combined when mealtime arrives, making this an ideal salad to carry for lunch or an evening picnic. If you prepare the vegetables ahead, allow them to warm to room temperature before serving for best flavor. I reckon that you will find that this quick dinner recipe is perfect for a picnic and much healthier that the fried chicken that too often graces our picnic tables.
