Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Toss asparagus pieces with 1 teaspoon olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Lay out in an even layer on a baking sheet and roast until tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the dressing: in a sealable jar (or small bowl) combine the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, and honey. Shake (or whisk) until emulsified; season to taste with salt and pepper.

Toss the arugula with the dressing, and then gently toss in the sliced strawberries and asparagus. Top salad with blue cheese crumbles and sliced almonds.
