Lemon Broccoli and Asparagus Salad

Spring is nearly here, and so I am craving light salads with fresh ingredients!  This broccoli and asparagus salad is healthy, really easy to make and it is delicious too!  This is perfect for making ahead and bringing in lunches, or as a side for a protein.  It would even be perfect as an Easter side dish you can make a little ahead of time (just add the nuts at the last minute). If you are craving something fresh, give this a try!
