WOW this was a different take on asparagus I think the dressing was almost like a pesto in fact...if I make it again I'm going to turn the dressing into a pesto. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Made this an hour ahead and put the dressing on after arranging the asparagus in a fancy pie dish. Slipped it in the fridge and served it COLD - YUMMY Read More

This was really good. I roasted the asparagus but that takes some more oil so the end result was a little more oil than I normally like so next time I will steam them. Read More

This was really good. I steamed the asparagus with salt and pepper then for the topping I used olive oil instead of veggie oil and nixed on the cilantro. I added into the mix some fresh basil and parsley then sprinkled on a little extra sugar over the asparagus after it was cooked. That sugar really kicks things up a bit. Very delicious if I must say.
