Lovely fresh flavors. I chose fresh asparagus. :)
This was delightfully delish! I used fresh asparagus, steamed as well. We enjoyed this cold with our Memorial Day cookout this year. Thank you!
I knew I would like this, because I'm a big asparagus fan & frequently use lemon juice with asparagus. The carrots worked out very well with the asparagus. But the real revelation was the lemon pepper, of which I admit I gave it more than just one dash. It really popped up the flavor! I think I will use lemon pepper with asparagus frequently from now on. I initially served it cold, as directed, but microwaved the leftovers & ate them warm, and they were fine that way, too. Also I like how low-sodium this recipe is. When I make it again, I'll probably use fresh asparagus.
