    If I don’t have rice vinegar, what would be a good substitute? I have regular, apple cider, balsamic and red wine pomegranate.

      Apple cider or balsamic would work for a substitute. Let me know how you like it. :)

    Strawberry asparagus salad is amazing! I’ll try it, but instead of 1/4 cup sugar i’ll add brown sugar. I found your post from Pinterest! Thanks for sharing!

      Brown sugar would be a great substitution! Hope you enjoy! :)
