This is so easy and elegant. A friend that does not cook served it at a luncheon! I believe the recipe is from the Houston Chronicle food section. I have used crushed pecans instead of walnuts with good results.

Wonderful! DH has always wants his asparagus steamed with a dollop of Miracle Whip on top. I'd done half a bunch that way just a few days earlier; and needing to use the rest as a side to chicken stroganoff on noodles i just couldn't deal with doing it that way again (aesthetically or nutritionally). The response to this "new" thing? "This is good. This is really good". So now we have a second way to treat asparagus.
