DIRECTIONS

  • Bend each asparagus stalk back until the tough root end snaps away.
  • Discard the ends.
  • Wash the stalks and slice diagonally into bite- sized pieces.
  • Blanch the pieces in boiling water for 1 minute, drain at once, and run cold water over the asparagus to stop their cooking.
  • Spread them on a double thickness of paper towels and pat them dry.
  • In a container large enough to hold the asparagus, combine the remaining ingredients and mix well until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Add the asparagus and toss to coat each piece with the dressing.
  • Chill slightly--no more than 2-3 hours--before serving.
  • May be served chilled or at room temperature.
