Grilled Asparagus and Steak Salad with Hoisin Vinaigrette

I just made the salad dressing and used it on a vegetable salad. Delicious.

Steph & Idaho Spud, you are very generous with your comments about my "poetry" but how could I write otherwise when I have such an excellent prompt from Dallas about what one hears when seeing a scene.  Great way to tap into senses!

Dallas, Thanks again. I like your style!

No, I haven't done that yet. I was out of salad making ingredients and  went shopping yesterday, but a trip to the store just about wears me out. I have a nice crisper full of fresh vegetables and will make it tomorrow. 

Tonight I am having a salad made with an Asian dressing that came in this morning from Fine Cooking: 

Hoisin  vinaigrette 
3 Tbs. lower-salt chicken broth; more as needed 
2-1/2 Tbs. hoisin sauce 
2 Tbs. olive oil 
2 Tbs. white wine vinegar 
1-1/2 tsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce 
2 tsp. minced fresh ginger 
1 tsp. Dijon or Chinese mustard 
1 tsp. minced garlic 
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Joan, I like your ability to put your thoughts into poetic form.

Oh yes, Dallas, I can hear birds, and buzzing of insects, and mice and little critters chomping on seeds if one is very quiet. Also a breeze and rustling of leaves. The feeling evoked is a pure calm, soft, gentle, nourishing environment.

I also hear peaceful silence.  I'd love to get out of this noisy city and to a place with that quality.

Having looked up wild onions now - the ones we had may have been garlic. It seems that wild onions are thin flat leaves and garlic the round tubular ones like those in our Ohio lawn.

The wild onions we had were thin leaved - but were tougher than chives - the leaves also seem to have ridges running the length to the tip. they still smelled great when mowed (& were tasty too).
