Asparagus, Mushroom & Black Forest Ham Salad
Serves 8 to 10

2 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed
12 tablespoons olive oil
6 tablespoons red wine vinegar
4 teaspoonsDietz & Watson whole grain mustard
About 1 pound white button mushrooms, sliced (about 5 1/2 cups)
¼ cup red onion, chopped
2 pounds Dietz & Watson Black Forest ham, sliced
1 jar Dietz & Watson roasted red peppers, sliced
½ cup Dietz & Watson Kosher pickles, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper

1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil over high heat. Toss in the asparagus, and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until the asparagus is just tender but still firm. Transfer to a large bowl of ice water to stop them from cooking further. Drain and place them in a large bowl.
2. Whisk together the oil, vinegar, mustard and pickles in a small bowl until the dressing is blended.
3. Add the mushrooms, red onion, roasted peppers and ham to the bowl of asparagus, and pour the dressing overtop. Season with salt and pepper, tossing gently to coat, and serve at room temperature.
