Simple and delicious! I made the sauce before starting the asparagus, and let it come to a close-to-room-temperature. This kept it from getting the asparagus cold, but I still didn't have to cook the sauce. One of the quickest sides I've ever made! Made for PAC Spring 2011. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
The sauce for this asparagus is wonderful. Hubby was sceptical about the no-cook aspect, but warmed to the very good flavor of this dish. I served with Crunchy Baked Tilapia and Orzo Pilaf for a great dinner.
Outstanding! Love the sauce; it's just tangy enough! (Served with fish and used some of the sauce with it) THX, Caroline
