    In a large bowl, combine orzo, asparagus, spinach, brussels sprouts, bell pepper, tomatoes, parsley, and almonds.

    Lemon Dijon Dressing: 

    In a glass measuring cup, small bowl, or jar, whisk together all the dressing ingredients until combined. Pour over the pasta salad and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste and stir again. Serve cold or at room temperature.
