Delicious for lunch or dinner, the Michigan Asparagus Advisory Board!

2 tablespoons olive oil

Combine all ingredients for dressing, mix well. Set aside.

Steam or microwave asparagus until tender-crisp. Drain and cool. Cut crab into bite-size pieces. Combine asparagus and crab in a large bowl; add lettuce mix, cantaloupe, and cucumber. Toss gently. Pour salad dressing over all. Toss to evenly coat. Serve immediately.
