      Fabulous! Easy to make and tasty. Great for a picnic, pot luck or familiy dinner. Sits in the refrigerator until you're ready to go out the door. Who could ask for more convenience?

      I used this recipe to use up some leftover steamed asparagus. It was quite tasty and the pecans were a nice addition.

      I think I might make myself sick on this....I ate almost the whole dish by myself. Hey Jude...thank you so much for this great recipe. I'm the only one in my family that likes asparagus, so I won't have to share with them! The flavors all compliment each other very well. This is a keeper and I will be making it again!
