    Deantini's Note:

    Spanish tapas are smaller and multiple dishes served in one seating and is a wonderful chance at tasting more variety in one meal. I have more tapas listed.

      Finally I managed to get hold of some very nice, fresh asparagus & after that putting together this recipe was a breeze! We absolutely enjoyed the use of the lemon & OJ in this sauce ~ It livened up this vegetable so much! And, since I use citrus zest whenever I can, I took Rita's suggestion & added a bit of both for A REALLY SMASH HIT SAUCE! Thanks for a great recipe!

      I cooked the green asparagus in the micro just till tender. The directions are not clear on the cooking of then. I did boil extra eggs for egg salad and used the lemon sauce for the dressing of them. There is plenty of sauce left over. This is so creamy and airy very lighty flavored with the citrus. Some lemon and orange zest would be a nice addition to it. I made for ZWT 5. Enjoyed. 'muchas gracias'. ;)

      My son and DH were pleasantly surprised by this last night, and they'd like me to make it again! Made exactly as per direction, I did find it gave me a Lot of sauce once I added the beaten egg white! A lovely light airy sauce with delicate citrus overtones, we very much enjoyed it! Very simple , and I was pleased that it was so well enjoyed by the family! Made for ZWT5
