      Wonderful recipe. I made it last night to go with a roasted chicken. I served the vinaigrette hot over hot asparagus, even the aroma was great. I used 2 cloves of garlic.I steamed the asparagus for about 4 minutes and they were thick stems (I like my asparagus still crisp). I am so glad I checked before posting the recipe - I picked up the identical one from the internet and was all excited about sharing it and here it was already posted. This is a really good way to serve asparagus.
