Ginger Asparagus Salad

Ginger Asparagus Salad created by Jostlori

I just love asparagus! Friends moved here (Florida) from the Dakotas and told me they picked it out of the ditches there!! How wonderful...I'd be wading through ditches everyday! I think its a "special" veggie, something I haven't ever seen grown here. This is a nice Asian themed asparagus salad. Chilling time is not included in prep and cooking time.....You will need to chill at least an hour and a half.

ingredients

directions

  • Combine the vinegar and gingerroot in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Boil 7 minutes or until the liquid is reduced by half. Remove from the heat, and stir in the sugar. Set aside.
  • Snap off tough ends of the asparagus. If you want to, remove the scales from the sides of the asparagus stalk -- I don't.
  • Place the asparagus in a large skillet and add cold water to cover. Bring to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Plunge the asparagus into cold water (with ice) to stop the cooking process. Drain the water off the asparagus.
  • Arrange the asparagus on a serving platter.
  • Combine the vegetable oil and next 4 ingredients, stirring well; drizzle over the asparagus. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes before adding the vinegar mixture. One hour before serving, drizzle the vinegar mixture over the asparagus. Chill for one more hour.

    Wow - this is a TEN STAR recipe! The combination of flavors is like an explosion in your mouth! I always use more garlic and ginger than a recipe calls for, and in this case it makes the dish shine for sure! We made the full recipe for the two of us, expecting leftovers. There were none - as we couldn't stop eating it. Best of 2021, for me. Thanks for sharing this one!

    This was so good! I think I'm so glad I remembered to start marinating long before I was going to make dinner. I forgot to do that on a couple nights last week! Good thing, too, b/c my asparagus was starting to get iffy! But it turned out great and we both devoured it!

    Delicious way to make asparagus! All the ingredients certainly made the asparagus shine. We had it as a side to chicken which went perfectly. A do again for sure. Thank you, Breezermom, for sharing. Made it for The Joy of Vegetables.
