READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Messy Kitchen Maid

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.
