      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.

      Like the chef who posted this recipe, asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables and one more reason I look forward to spring. This dish really enhances and complements the asparagus so well and will certainly become a repeat here. In preparing this dish misread the directions and error used a prepared lowfat Italian salad dressing. The addition of the vinegar and tarragon elevated the bottled dressing taking away the sweetness often found there. Tarragon is one of those herbs that in the right amount zings but in excess clunks, here it is just perfect. Thanks Lainey.
