Drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil; sprinkle with salt.
Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until crisp-tender, stirring every 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions; drain.
In a blender, combine the onions, vinegar and soy sauce; cover and process until smooth. While processing, gradually add the remaining oil in a steady steam.
In a large salad bowl, combine the pasta, spinach and asparagus.
Drizzle with dressing; toss to coat.
Sprinkle with cashews and cheese.
Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gruener Veltliner
Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gruener Veltliner are my top picks for Salad. Sauvignon Blanc and Gruner Veltliner both have herby notes that complement salads with enough acid to match tart vinaigrettes, while a Chardonnay can be a good pick for creamy salad dressings. The Pedroncelli Signature Selection Chardonnay with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 15 dollars per bottle.
Pedroncelli Signature Selection ChardonnayRich lemon, pear and honey notes in the bouquet lead to fresh flavors of apple, meyer lemon, and mango. The blend of the two Chardonnay lots adds both fruit forward qualities and toasted oak complexity. Highlighted by bright acidity, the wine finishes crisp with a long lingering finish.
