      I goofed a bit on this so I'm going to hold off on rating until I prepare it again. (Strictly user erroras the directions were quite clear.) I made the dressing the evening before serving. Initially, this really was great as it was lemony and delicious. I could already envision using this as a dipping sauce for other veggies as the flavor was light, crisp and refreshing. But a few more hours the garlic had sort of taken over making it too pungent to fully enjoy, and overwhelming to the delicate flavor of asparagus. My suggestion is too not chill more than 6-8 hours.
