Roasted Asparagus and Fruit Salad

1/2 lb roasted asparagus
1 lb bacon, fried and crumbled
1 bottle (8 ozs) Wishbone Balsamic Vinaigrette
2 Tbs brown sugar
red grapes
Blue Cheese Crumbles
mixed greens

Clean asparagus, snap off ends.  Place on small baking sheet and season with salt and pepper.  Take 8 ozs bottle of dressing and squeeze oil out from the bottle and use to toss asparagus with.  The oil will rise to the top so it will be easy to pour out.  Take the balsamic left in the bottle and pour into small sauce pan with brown sugar, stir and keep on med/low heat until thickened and caramelized.  Slice and cube cantaloupe and pineapple (can be done ahead of time and refrigerated).  Arrange greens on plate..add asparagus, fruit, bacon, blue cheese then drizzle with dressing.  Serve 4
