This is easy, yummy and looks elegant when served for company. I've also used the sauce for a "tarter" to dip for sweet potato fries.

I liked this very much I had very thin asparagus but it was good anyway. I would use the dressing for other things as well. Made for World Tour 8 Thanks for posting.

I had the smallest asparagus I have ever seen but this was a great recipe to use it up! I roasted mine for about 8 minutes longer because I like it a little crispy/blackened. The sauce was great, I made half but kept the same amount of capers. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.

Great side dish with dinner tonight. The sauce was awesome and was great with the asparagus. I very rarely roast asparagus, but in this case this was very good. The sauce was worth making this again. Great recipe !! Made for Zaar Stars ..
