    This is a great recipe. I tried this with company last night and everyone loved it. Just the right amount of lemon and garlic flavoring. We did not have the pine nuts, but it was great without.

    All I heard was "YUM". I cooked my asparagus in a grill basket lined with foil. When the spears were done I just poured the vinaigrette in and left it on the grill until it sizzled. I also added red onion. This is one of my top favorite asparagus recipes now...so easy, everything is on hand, and great flavor!

    I've been making this dish for almost 20 years and am never tired of it. I serve it on top of mixed greens which goes great with the vinaigrette.
