This comes from one of Holly Clegg Trim and Terrific cookbooks. Quick, easy, and light on calories! A taste experience not to be missed! You will like the crunch of the almonds. Be sure your fresh asparagus stalks are firm and have closed tips.


  1. Clean and trim off the tough ends of asparagus.
  2. Melt margarine in a large skillet. (Non-stick is optional).
  3. Add the asparagus. Saute' at medium heat for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add lemon juice, cover, and simmer until crisp-tender.
  5. Add the almond slivers. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Toss gently, then serve.
