I really wasn't sure what to expect from this recipe, but I was pleasantly surprised. The combination of the tomato with the green onion was terrific, and the light touch with the herbs added just the right note. I steamed my asparagus in the microwave for about 4 minutes, which was perfect. This really couldn't be easier, and I will definitely be making this again! Made for Spring PAC 2012.
