    breezermom's Note:

    This recipe combines the rich taste of sesame with lemon, accentuating the delicious flavor of asparagus. It is quick to make, making it good for any day of the week. A friend of mine from South Dakota said asparagus grows wild in the ditches there....almost makes me want to move from sunny Florida to cold South Dakota! This recipe originally came from a cookbook called "Savory Secrets: A Collection of St. Louis Recipes".

      This is pretty good, but we thought this was too lemony, I would cut the lemon components in about fourth and will make it again this way.

      Yum! This was really simple to make and loved the lemony flavor. Served alongside some Asian food and it made a great side. Thanks breezer for yet another winner. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.

      Excellent side dish to an Indian banquet. I made this exactly a written. The lemon juice and sesame seeds and oil make this recipe a real winner. Thanks for sharing.
