1/3 C nuts, chopped (try toasted pecans, almonds, or walnuts)
1 T lemon juice
2 t olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 lb fresh asparagus

Tear the lettuce into small pieces and put it in a large bowl. Toss together with the apple, onion, and nuts. Stir in the oil and toss to coat. Add the lemon juice, salt, and pepper and toss.
