Salad with Chicken and Asparagus

Salad with Chicken and Asparagus

Although different varieties of asparagus grow in the European part of Russia, dishes with this delicious vegetable do not belong to the traditional Russian cuisine. Many Russians discover asparagus during their trips to Germany or Italy, find it tasty and serve asparagus at home in Russia as a fine gourmet creation. Served as a salad with tender chicken breast and white wine sauce, asparagus is usually quite popular with everyone.
