Asparagus and Artichoke Salad with Black Olives- Gluten Free

I received a few gluten free magazines from friends when I first found out I had Celiac disease. They were great since it gave me some education on eating gluten free as well as providing me with some great gluten free products and recipes.  Since it has been asparagus season here and we love artichokes and black olives I knew we had to try this recipe.  It was very good, but next time I would use a little thicker asparagus.  Mine were really skinny ones, and seemed to get a little lost in the salad.  But the flavor was good!
