I used lime peel instead of the lemon zest! The lime zest gave the asparagus a tangy flavor and the dressing was delicious on the broiled asparagus! What a tasty side dish!

This recipe takes asparagus to another level. I followed the recipe exactly except that I baked it (350 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes) instead of broiling..... I was baking fish for dinner and decided to bake the asparagus as well. The mayonnaise and lemon zest give it a refreshing flavor. I also served it with lemon wedges (since I was serving it with fish). Five stars for sure! Volunteer Field Editor
