      I loved this dish. I steamed enough asparagus for two dinners. Mixed in the amount of dressing at the time of serving. I was looking for dishes that I could make in the morning & serve cold at night for dinner due to the heat. Served this with Vortex World Famous Potato Salad & grilled chicken. Thank you CountryLady we will be having this often when asparagus is in season.

      This was wonderful! I loved the dressing; topped with slivered almonds instead of pecans. I could eat a whole bowl of this myself-it's so good! Thanks!
