I really enjoyed this exotic tasting treat. It was quick and easy to make with a great punch of flavor. I loved that all the ingredients worked well together and that you could taste them all. We thought that the asparagus and olives worked really well together in this dish. A few small changes, diced tomatoes instead of sun dried, didn't have any and I freshly ground the chinese five spice powder, for a beautiful mellow note. This was one of my personal favorite dishes, Good Luck in the Contest.
What a fun combination of flavors! I don't think I've ever had black olives with asparagus together in a dish, and combining it with the five spice....what a flavor explosion. I enjoyed this very much, and its quick to make as a bonus. Thanks for sharing!
