    Mirj's Note:

    I could eat tons of this, and I do. You can also use canned asparagus, but this is amazing with the fresh (and yes, more expensive) stuff.

      Two thumbs up MIrj! I used hot salsa, used garlic and added juice of half a lime. All I can say is: YUM YUM!! And look at the calorie count; is this heavenly or WHAT! Thank you so much for the recipe. I will be making lots of this as asparagus are in season.

      Boy, when I read this recipe I thought, "No way can this taste like guacamole." But you can believe it! It's really, really similar. I'd blend the asparagus separately to get a smooth consistency, cause it needs it. Then, pulse briefly when including the salsa (or fresh tomato/onion/pepper)and cilantro. Also, add lime juice. .3 grams of fat, can't beat that!

      OMGosh. I just want to run through the streets screaming. This is miraculous. I love guacamole but seldom indulge because it is so high in fat and I can't eat just a little bit. I have to eat it all. This alternative is really very good. I did like Izzy and added the juice of half a lime and used hot salsa. Bravo Mirj!!
