Potato, Asparagus, and Green Bean Salad

I love making salads, but have been struggling to come up with salads that are different than our normal “go-to” recipes.

So…this crazy salad came about in attempt for something new and different.

C.J. gave it a good review…so I encourage you to give it a try!
