I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil....it was delicious!
Has a delicate flavor that enhances the asparagus without overpowering it.
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
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.
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!
This is delicious. It works well without the cilantro if you don't have any on hand. Just be careful not to overlook the asparagus. I'm going to try this with other green vegetables.
