Asparagus w/ almonds....yum! You can serve this warm or cold. I prefer warm. For extra flavor, lightly toast the almonds. If asparagus is out of season, you could use frozen.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam/cook asparagus until tender-crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together almonds, olive oil, cider vinegar, teriyaki sauce, sugar, ginger, and pepper.
  3. Pour over the cooked asparagus and toss to coat well.
  4. Serve right away or chill for 1-2 hours and serve cold.

Excellent. We served this chilled at our Easter Cookout and it was a big hit!

Yum is right for this recipe! I doubled this and served it with an Asian inspired theme for our dinner. I stir-fried the asparagus in the olive oil and when tender-crisp added the remaining ingredients. We loved the combination of flavors. Made for ZWT6.

I cut this in half since there was only 2 of us and added about 1 T. of the cider vinegar. Overall, we just LOVED this! I steamed the asparagus in the microwave and then added the vinaigrette dressing. I topped the asparagus with the toasted almonds which made for a pretty presentation. A great addition to the grilled salmon we had. Thanks!
