Blue Cheese and Asparagus Salad

This is DELISH!!! YUM! A definite keeper and a great summer salad!


 2 lbs asparagus tips
1 can mandarin oranges, drained, 
juices reserved 
1 tbsp  reserved mandarin orange 
juice **I used to taste**
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil 
1  cup Blue Cheese, crumbled
 Fill a large bowl with ice water and set aside.  Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Add the asparagus and cook until crisp tender then drain and plunge into the ice bath for 1 minute, drain again and set aside.  Whisk together the olive oil and orange juice.  Toss the asparagus, blue cheese and oranges together and drizzle the dressing over.  Toss again and sprinkle with salt.  Enjoy~
