I only used a tablespoon of sugar. It really doesn't need it.
This is awesome - didn't put in the almonds though as I was running short on time to toast them etc. Also I only used about half of the dressing. SOOOOO tasty.
This is my new favorite recipe for asparagus. I have made it up to the point where you add the blue cheese and almonds, put it in a casserole dish in the fridge, and then heated it with the final ingredients just before serving. This makes it easy to do ahead.
Fantastic salad, great both hot and cold the next day...
This is awesome. I made it after finding asparagus on sale at the grocers. What a treat! I will make it over and over, and have already passed it on to others!
