Asparagus Nut Stir-Fry

This pretty side dish is an excellent way to serve one of the first springtime vegetables from our garden. I never have leftovers since everyone goes for the fresh taste of the asparagus, the crunch of the walnuts and the zippy seasoning. —Margaret Souders Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania
