Ingredients

  • 2 medium gold or red potatoes about 10 ounces
  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 1 bunch asparagus about 12 ounces, trimmed and sliced into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 small onion cut into thin wedges
  • 2-3 cloves garlic unpeeled
  • 1/4 cup fat-free balsamic vinaigrette such as my Balsamic-Raisin Dressing
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • Cook the potatoes until tender but still firm in any way you choose (boil, microwave, or bake). Allow to cool slightly and cut into 1-inch dice. Place in a large serving bowl along with the chickpeas.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, spread the asparagus on a baking sheet and sprinkle the onion over it. In a corner of the sheet, place the unpeeled garlic cloves. Roast until asparagus is tender yet still crisp, about 15 minutes, stirring once after 7 minutes. Remove from oven.
  • Set the garlic aside to cool for a few minutes and put the asparagus into the bowl with the potatoes. When the garlic is cool, peel it and place it in a small bowl. Mash it well with a fork; then stir in the salad dressing. Pour the dressing over the asparagus and stir gently to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
