I love the simplicity of microwaving the asparagus. I microwaved the asparagus (snapped into thirds) and a little bit of diced red onion. I made the dressing as directed. I loved it. The only reason why I gave it four stars versus five was I do not think you need to serve it over greens. A nice touch but not required. I loved it!
Steamed the asparagus toasted the hazelnuts added a splash of honey to dressing and let it all marinade together overnight. Yum! I have to agree that the asparagus tastes better alone than with the greens.
a nice quick salad although I too added a little sweetness to the dressing (and halfed it)- I added orange honey which complimented the juice. I also steamed the asparagus instead of microwaving it... that allowed me to avoid the hassle of configuring microwave wattage. Running the cooked asparagus under cold water after it was to my liking also stopped the cooking to help keep it somewhat crisp. This recipe would also go nicely over baby spinach with fresh bacon bits replacing the hazelnuts.
It is nice to know that I can cook asparagus in the microwave. I didn't serve this over greens just served the marinated asparagus as a side dish. Next time I'll cut the dressing/marinade in half because there was way more than I needed for just the asparagus. Still this was quite good and we enjoyed it.
had to use up some asparagus fast.Followed directions adding a little minced garlic to marinade used olive oil.I have never been able to cook asparsgus in micro.THANKS FOR THE TIP.This is just delicious alone or on lettuce.Didn't bother with nuts.Will keep this.Great for company!!!
This was good but nothing amazing. I marinated the asparagus in 1/2 the dressing and then used the other 1/2 on the salad. I also added tomato cucumber and boiled eggs. I used almonds instead of hazelnuts. I steamed the asparagus instead of doing it in the microwave. Overall it was very easy but not so great that I'll make it again.
I scaled this down to two servings but other than that followed the recipe exactly. I have not prepared asparagus in the microwave so I was interested to see how this would work. I set the timer for 3 minutes and it was a little long for us because it was past the "toothy" stage. 5 minutes would have caused it to disintegrate I believe. There were no problems with the lack of a vent in the plastic wrap. As a matter of fact it worked quite well and as soon as the dish hit room air the asparagus looked like it had been shrink-wrapped. Nice touch to add hazel nuts but I feel walnuts would have worked just as well. This was a tasty salad. Thanks!
