Reviews for Asian Asparagus Salad
"A refreshing change of pace!"
"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."
