    Messy Kitchen Maid's Note:

    I make this for every special occasion.. very easy,can be made a day or two ahead. You can use any kind of bottled salad dressing,although Greek,Balsamic,and Honey Mustard work well.

      Make-ahead vegetable recipes are so handy, and I've often wondered how to do that with asparagus. Thanks to Messy Kitchen Maid, I've found the answer! Per her suggestion, I used Greek dressing, and it is a very nice flavor combination. Lemon and parsley make an attractive presentation. Best of all, it's so easy. Nice to make as a quick meal for yourself (I like to snack on stuff like this) or bigger crowds.

      Perfect! This is just the easiest and quickest way to make asparagus for any kind of a get-together. Made as written using Italian and must say it was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Thanks for the post.
