A great friend of mine introduced me to this recipe and this is the only way my kids will eat their asparagus now. Didn't see it on here, so thought I should share:-)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb fresh asparagus, bottoms removed
  • 8 ounces Italian salad dressing, I use Kraft Zesty Italian

Directions

  1. Cut 1 to 2 inches off bottom of asparagus spears.
  2. Place in gallon sized zip top plastic bag.
  3. Pour 8 ozs Italian Salad Dressing in bag with asparagus.
  4. Marinate for at least 1 hour in refrigerator.
