Amanda, you've got a winner of a recipe here! I used asparagus with small diameters and cooked them my usual way in the microwave for 3 minutes. I used 1 T balsamic and 1 T seasoned rice wine vinegar and a shake of garlic powder. . .perfect!!! I let them marinate for about 2 hours in the fridge before serving and then topped with the tomtoes and poured the extra vinaigrette over the tomatoes which was awesome. . .asparagus were tangy and the tomatoes were fresh. I will definitely make this again. Made for Veg*n Swap.
love this, I added 1/2 cup chopped red onions and garlic/wine seasoning. awsome, ty
Very nice. We enjoyed it with dinner last night, and it was even better at luch today after it had more chilling time, I thnk I might play with the flavors a bit the next time I make this... might add some fresh Mozzerella or add some sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds for some of the olive oil.
Very good and elegant way to serve asparagus. I usually have hot asparagus, so this was a nice change. The chopped tomato adds nice color to the dish. Although I didn't serve this for Christmas, the red-green would be perfect for a holiday meal.
Simply wonderful, and lends to attractive presentation as well. I made the recipe as written, except scaled down to 2 servings. I used white wine balsamic vinegar and one small, chopped Campari tomato. The vinaigrette with fresh basil was simple yet tasty. I learned how to keep asparagus looking so fresh; the asparagus cooked to perfection according to directions. Thanks for posting, AmandaInOz, this is a keeper. Made for December 2008 Veg*n Swap.
Good simple recipe. Like a previous poster, I also added garlic. Note, I liked it at room temperature, but my DH preferred it hot. Made for Vegn Recipe Swap 2
LOVED IT! Will make again. ( I did use 1 TBSP balsamic vinegar and 1 TBSP white wine vinegar and some minced garlic). Thank You! [made for AUS/NZ recipe swap #20, Sept. 2008].
This is a perfect spring or summer side dish. I marinated the asparagus for about 1 hour before dinner. Family all loved it. This will be made again and again. Made and reviewed for ZWT4.
This is SO good! Do let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours to let the flavours saturate the asapargus. Wonderful side for a hots summer day. I used a white wine vinegar made by one of our BC wineries. Next time I might just try adding some red pepper flakes for fun. Made for ZWT4 and will be making again and again too!
Yikes this is devine! 5 excellent stars ! DO DO DO let the sauce marinade for a while and let it all seep into the asparagus.. this tasted wonderful. Please see my Rating System: 5 excellent stars for a brilliant summer side dish that should not fail to please and which is excellently easy to make in advance. Thanks!
