READY IN: 15mins

This is a wonderful cold side dish that will make everyone an asparagus lover! I requested this from a friend who brought it to a potluck a few years back, and everyone asked for the recipe for this dish.

I made this for my lunch so I cut it down quite a bit. I used seasoned rice vinegar so left out the sugar but it was a tad bit salty to me. Next time I'll use less soy sauce, even though I used low sodium sauce. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
