    Queen Dragon Mom's Note:

    From America's Test Kitchen. This looks just wonderful. "To prepare the asparagus for this salad, we found that broiling concentrates the flavor of the asparagus and lightly caramelizes the peel. We prefer to use thin (under 5/8-inch) asparagus under the broiler-this lets us skip the peeling step and allows the spears to cook more evenly."

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Adjust oven rack to about 4 inches from heating element and heat broiler.
    2. 2
      Toss asparagus with oil and salt and pepper, then lay spears in single layer on heavy rimmed baking sheet. Broil, shaking pan halfway through to turn spears, until asparagus is tender and lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Cool asparagus 5 minutes and arrange on serving dish.
    4. 4
      Fry bacon strips in medium skillet over medium heat until brown and crisp, about 6 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towel–lined plate and set aside.
    5. 5
      Whisk onion, vinegar, parsley, and oil in small bowl; season to taste with salt and pepper. Drizzle over asparagus, sprinkle with bacon, and serve immediately.

      Had my first asparagus of the season and used this recipe...delicious! The only thing I did differently was to cut the bacon back to 3 slices. Thanks for posting!

      This was really very good. I followed the directions exactly with the exception that I forgot to add the bacon at the end. My boyfriend went to the counter and asked what the bacon was for and we added it for the second half. We much preferred it without the bacon as it has a strong taste that overwhelmed the aparagus. The red onions soaked up all the yummy balsamic vinegar and were very tasty. We will make this again and just omit the bacon entirely. Thanks for posting!
