Chilled Marinated Asparagus Recipe

"My mother had surgery a few years back in spring, so my two sisters and I were challenged to prepare dishes like this that would keep well and still taste great as leftovers," recalls Nicole LeCroy of Nashville, Tennessee. "Mom got her appetite back when she tried this cool and crunch asparagus that gets a flavor boost from soy sauce. It's a nice accompaniment to chicken, roast beef or ham."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 17, 2013

This recipe is great. I did alter it the second time I made it, because I like to use as many fresh ingredients as possible. I am giving a link to my altered recipe, which I served this week at the Kanawha Valley Amateur Winemakers Guild monthly meeting/dinner. I used the last 2 lbs. of asparagus from this season's harvest, fresh garlic and substituted a few ingredients to give the dish more of an Asian flavor. https://www.facebook.com/notes/farmers-table/marinated-asparagus/497344673672644

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 3, 2008

After I made this recipe for a church group Easter brunch, several people requested that I bring it again the following year. I never have leftovers! (Note: I simmer the asparagus for a longer time, to ensure tenderness. I also replace the garlic powder with two cloves of fresh minced garlic.)
