Cold Asparagus with Prosciutto and Lemon
May 03, 2011

Not a favorite in our house, at all. Based on the rave reviews, I thought I'd serve this at Easter dinner, as a side to go with our lamb. Although the presentation was nice and everyone liked the cold asparagus, I noticed that everyone tossed the prosciutto (including me) and nobody went back for seconds, which left me with a lot of left-overs that we tossed. Disappointing. The meat was obviously a turn-off and even though I gave my asparagus a "bath" in lemon juice, it barely picked up any of the flavor. Note: if you decide to try it - make sure you barely blanche the asparagus. Based on another review, I kept mine in for almost 5 minutes and the tops turned to mush which didn't look very nice.
