To blanch fresh asparagus, add the spears to a large pot of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, for 2 to 3 min. Drain, then immediately plunge the asparagus into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. When completely cool, drain and pat dry.
Not only is this delicious low-sodium side salad a good source of vitamin C from the oranges, but it's also an excellent source of vitamin A from the combination of lettuce and asparagus.
