A delightful change of pace from hot vegetable side dishes, this lovely asparagus salad gets an Asian twist with a simple marinade and sesame seeds. Once you try it, you'll serve it time and again. -Linda Hutton, Hayden, Idaho

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 13, 2013

"This is good, it just needs to soak in the sauce for a couple of hours. Just as the chill time says to do. I did not let it soak and it was tasteful only where the parts had soaked for a few minutes."

"This was really good. I tasted it cold and thought it was okay, but decided to warm it after it had been marinated and drained. My family and I preferred it warm."

"Everyone liked this. Normally we just add butter & salt to steamed asparagus, but this was a nice change for a cold side dish."
