    SueVM's Note:

    This is my MIL recipe for marinated asparagus that she served each year at Passover. I now make it often as a side dish to our main course, and although hubby had it a lot growing up he still loves it. Update: This recipe can be served hot or cold.

      This was alright, but we weren't wowed by it. I used sherry vinegar, olive oil, and added fresh chopped thyme to the marinade. I think there should be some onion or shallot in the marinade, I think that was the flavor we were missing. We served this cold, along with a steak sandwich and fries. I really liked how easy this was to put together. I made the marinade in a zip top bag, then added the drained aspagagus, and tossed in the refrigerator. This would be agreat dish to take to a BBQ or picnic, since it is made ahead, and can sit out without going bad. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT5 by one of the Cooks with Dirty Faces.

      It was wonderful.Instead of the vegetable oil I used olive oil. I did not know if you suppose to eat this cold or heat it up. It would be good either way. Thank you for sharing. Chef#220151
