To make salad

Preheat oven to 500┬░F.

Remove bottom third of asparagus stalks and rinse. Slice red pepper in half and remove seeds. Pour the olive oil into a cast iron or other heavy-duty, oven-proof skillet. Place the red pepper in the skillet and place in the center of the preheated oven, uncovered. Roast for approximately 15 minutes.

Add the asparagus. Roast for another 8 to 10 minutes.

Remove from oven. Cool slightly, then cut the red pepper into 3-inch strips.

Toss the asparagus and red pepper with the vinaigrette. Chill. Arrange the greens on a salad plate, place several spears of the chilled asparagus over the greens, along with several strips of the roasted pepper and a teaspoon of dressing.
