Asparagus marinated in vinaigrette and dotted with cheese makes an awesome side. We’re blue cheese fans, but you might like Parmesan or feta. —Susan Vaith, Jacksonville, Florida

"I was lucky enough to find our favorite thick stalks of asparagus for this recipe. We had it instead of slaw with our fish dinner. Delicious! This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thank you, Susan!"

"WOW! I made just half of the recipe, which worked just fine, and have loved just snacking on these amazing asparagus. Better than chips any day to ease that urge for a crunch. And, I just made a sandwich with these spears, a slice of ham, some mayo on rye... Spectacular!"
