Q: What are the health benefits of asparagus?
A: Asparagus is high in fiber, low in calories, and full of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, C, E, K, and B6, as well as folate, iron, copper, and calcium. They help improve digestion, lower blood pressure, and provide an important source of antioxidants that help fight free radicals in the body.

Q: Can this salad be prepared in advance?
A: Yes, you can blanch the asparagus and prepare the dressing in advance. However, to preserve the freshness and crunch of the asparagus, it is advisable to assemble the salad just before serving. Slivered almonds and feta cheese can be added last to maintain their texture and flavor.

Q: How do I choose the best asparagus for this recipe?
A: Opt for fresh asparagus whose stems are firm, smooth, and vibrant green, with tightly closed tips. Avoid asparagus that appears dry or wilted at the ends, as it is likely less fresh and will have a less pleasant texture when cooked.

Q: Is there an alternative to feta cheese I could use?
A: Absolutely, if you prefer an alternative to feta, fresh goat cheese or even small pieces of mozzarella can be delicious substitutions. Each will bring a creamy texture and unique flavor to the salad.
