Recipe by An_Net

Great as a Christmas table addition or when you have an ample supply of asparagus. Make ahead and allow to chill in the refrigerator. Prep time does not include chill time.

This was just terrible! The combination of flavors was way off for me. It might be easy but wow a waste of asparagus for me
