"Living in the Midwest, we anticipate spring treats like fresh asparagus all winter long," affirms Mickey Kelly, Burnsville, Minnesota. "Our three small children can't help but snitch a taste when this dish is chilling in the fridge. I use the vinaigrette dressing on salads, sliced tomatoes and other steamed vegetables as well."

"I did change a couple things, because of the ingredients I had on hand (rice vinegar for red wine vinegar, Worcester sauce for soy, and yellow onions) but it was still delicious! It had a very refreshing flavor, and it was nice to do something different than the standard steamed or roasted asparagus."

"I love this recipe! The flavors are outstanding! I had been following a low sugar diet for several months and I was looking for some variety when I found this recipe. I will be making this recipe on a weekly basis."
