  1. Wash and trim the asparagus by breaking the stems at the point where they yield easily. Steam over hot water about 3 to 7 minutes, depending on the thickness of the stems.
  2. Stir the oil and vinegar together in a serving dish.
  3. Drain the asparagus and turn in the serving dish to cover with dressing.

So simple and yummy. I cooked the asparagus in my steamer machine. I used 1 1/2 tsp of balsamic vinegar (my mistake). But it was great. Not too vinegry (is that a word). Thanks NELady. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
