Served cold on leaf lettuce. Great flavour and nice presentaion. Best if marinated overnight (hence the 24 hr cook time).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dip asparagus in boiling water and drain immediately.
  2. Pour Italian salad dressing over asparagus, cover (I put it in a ziplock), and marinate overnight.
  3. Serve on lettuce leaf and sprinkle with fresh black pepper and fresh grated parmesean.

I thought I would like this more than I did since I normally love anything marinated in Italian dressing, but the taste plus the texture of the asparagus reminded me too much of eating a pickle (and I'm not really fond of pickles). Someone who loves pickles would probably love this! Made and reviewed for *Zaar* Cookbooks *Tag* Game 2008.

Woo hoo! I finally got my husband to eat asparagus! I made this using the entire bunch of asparagus and an 8 oz. bottle of Wishbone Italian dressing. I followed steps 2 and 3 to the letter, and served as a side dish with a nice roast. Now I can have asparagus, and my husband will eat it too. Thank you!
