This makes a good cool vegetable on a hot day—it's long been in my recipe file, and we have Dilly Asparagus often. My husband and I farm ranch in central Texas. I enjoy cooking, especially when I'm trying out new recipes shared by friends or by other Country Woman subscribers. (I love CW!)

"This was excellent. I would make no changes. The asparagus was crisp and the dressing was perfect. It keeps very well for a number of days."
