Orange Ginger Asparagus

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Rita1652

An easy asparagus dish that has a refreshing citrus and ginger addition. This is even better the next day! I just sliced the spears into 1/3's toss and served cold! A great salad!

I enjoyed this! I used an orange-rhubarb marmalade that I got at the farmers market, and pecans instead of hazlenuts. Quick but impressive. Thank you!
