I love asparagus. I used dijon mustard and found it to be fine. I did this away ahead of time and served it cold with a hot meal. The hot and cold contrast worked well. So easy and good. Thanks again Eve.

Thank you, Evie, for a fabulous recipe. I served it cold with a pasta main dish and it was absolutely delicious! I'm certain that it will be a regular for us! The dressing is what made it so special and I think it would be great on green beans, broccoli, virtually anything! Thanks again!

This was a really good dressing for asparagus. I served it chilled - although when I tasted it warm it was really good too. I added a few chopped tomatoes and onions to make more of a salad. It makes plenty of dressing, so if you have more asparagus than the recipe calls for or want to add something else you'll be fine. I will definitely make this again.
