This is a nice change for asparagus. The dressing has a little tang from the vinegar and the anchovy paste rounds out the flavors. I cut the recipe in half and had a little extra dressing that I can't wait to use tomorrow when I steam some more asparagus. Unfortuneately my red onion was bad so we enjoyed it without onion. Thanks for this keeper Derf!
