    2. 2
      Thinly slice the mushrooms.
    3. 3
      Simmer the asparagus in 1/2 cup of water with a pinch of salt until it is tender (about 10-13 minutes).
    4. 4
      While the asparagus is simmering, whisk the lemon juice, vinegar, Dijon mustard, and garlic together.
    5. 5
      Gradually add the olive oil and then the black pepper.
    6. 6
      Once you have drained the asparagus and let it cool, gently toss it with half of the dressing to coat it well.
    7. 7
      Toss the remaining dressing with the basil and the mushrooms, and sprinkle the mixture over the asparagus.
    8. 8
      Season to taste with salt, garnish with freshly grated Parmesan or Mizithra cheese, and serve.

      I have made this a few times and LOVE it! I steam my asparagus a few minutes then cool it down in cold water so it stays nice and green. I also have added some fiddleheads to it..mmmm

      OUTSTANDING!! I roasted the asparagus w/a little olive oil and sea salt (3-5 minutes, depending on size of stalks), then followed the recipe. Wonderful fresh taste. This is a keeper as long as the local asparagus is available.

      This is VERY good! I wanted something a little different than the usual roasted or sauteed asparagus and this was perfect. The flavors were bold, and perfect together, and the dish was simple to prepare. I halved the recipe and made for just two people for 3pts a piece! Not bad at all!
