In a large bowl, whisk together vinegar, olive oil, mustard, salt, pepper and celery seed; stir in cooked pasta.
In a shallow microwave-safe dish, combine asparagus and ¼ cup water. Cover with plastic wrap, venting 1 corner, and microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes or until asparagus is tender. Drain well, and let cool. Cut asparagus into 1-inch pieces.
Stir asparagus, tomatoes, and all remaining ingredients into pasta mixture until well combined. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
