Roasted Asparagus, Tomato, and Portobello Salad

About six months ago, we discovered the roasted asparagus, tomato, and portobello salad at Whole Foods and were instantly enamored. As a result, I was determined to recreate it at home. 

I studied the ingredient label, made a few estimations and adjustments, and ended up with a super easy and delicious side dish. It makes roughly six servings, so it is good for company or for leftovers.

  • 2 bunches asparagus tips
  • 1 pound cherry tomatoes
  • 6-7 portobello mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 cup olive oil 
  • [The Whole Foods version also includes what appears to be Italian seasoning. However, I'm not a huge Italian seasoning fan, so I leave it out. But you could add in a couple teaspoons if it floats your boat.]
First, cut the asparagus tips into halves or thirds depending on how long they are. 

Chop up the mushrooms. 

And add them to a big bowl with the tomatoes. 

 You could also cut the tomatoes in half. But I made this on a weeknight last time, and as I was about to start chopping them, all I could think was "ain't nobody got time for that." 

Next, add the seasoned salt...



And olive oil...

Mix it all together. 

Spread it out onto a baking sheet. 

Cook at 350 for an hour or until all the veggies are nice and roasted. 

This is a super versatile dish that can be served alongside whatever you want. 

It was especially delectible with roasted pork tenderloin and cheesy polenta. 

So simple and so delicious. I love this stuff!

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
