Asparagus never tasted so good! Simply seasoned with butter and green onions, the roasted spears have a fresh flavor and keep their bright color, too. You might want to make extra.
Since my husband and I both work full-time. I'm always looking for fast nutritious recipes. The whole family loves this tasty treatment for asparagus. I can't make it often enough.

"Now that our six children are grown, they've started sharing recipes with me - and I love it," beams Louisville, Kentucky reader Anna Kreymborg. "This tasty way to prepare fresh asparagus - by roasting the spears, then serving them with a Dijon dressing at room temperature - came from our daughter."
Our grandchildren love roasted asparagus—especially in this refreshing salad. The orange dressing gives it "zing", and sunflower kernels add crunch. I like to make it with my homegrown asparagus.

Kelley Casey of Fairfax, Virginia highlights the garden-fresh taste of asparagus with a mild lemon dressing and Parmesan cheese in this delicious side dish. Try it with pork or chicken for a lighter meal.
