Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables and I love preparing it this way. Preparation time includes chilling overnight.

I also love asparagus and found this a wonderful and easy recipe to prepare. I did have trouble finding Italian salad dressing mix, but subsituted it for pre made with just a little dash of garlic white wine vinegar. Great flavours and so very tasty. Will be making this again Lainey. Thank You for a great recipe.

  1. Bring about 1/2 cup water to a boil in a saucepan.
  2. Add asparagus, cover and cook until tender, about 6 minutes (Alternatively, you can use 1 1/2 cans (15 ounces each) whole green asparagus spears and skip this step.).
  3. Drain the asparagus and layer it in a shallow glass dish.
  4. Sprinkle each layer with crumbled tarragon leaves, pepper and garlic salt.
  5. Pour salad dressing and vinegar over asparagus, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  6. Serve chilled asparagus on a bed of lettuce leaves.
  7. Top with a dollop of mayonnaise (which you can flavor with some of the dressing), if desired.
