      This is excellent, but time-consuming. We used 1.25 cups of green onions and 1/3 cup regular onion instead of shallots. We also used 1.5 T Dijon mustard and 1 T fresh lemon juice. We added 1/2 cup diced red bell peppers with the 1/4 cup of green onions sprinkled over the dish at the end.

      This was good but took a bit more effort than my Lemon Dijon Asparagus and was not better than it in my opinion. I was surprised this didn't have a stronger flavor. I think the chicken broth diluted it. I also selected this for the South Beach Diet and used Splenda. I used whole grain dijon and the black pepper option. It made a nice presentation and seemed gourmet. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

      This was a yummy refreshing way to serve asparagus. I substituted the sugar for Splenda to make it South Beach diet friendly. Thanks for posting!
