"Good combination of ingredients. May also adapt to your taste. The basic ingredients for the dressing are OK, but WAY too much vinegar. With major alterations, including more sugar and oil, the dressing was good and loved by all. Without changes, totally unacceptable. Obviously you need to adjust the dressing to your taste."

"Excellent recipe, I've made it several times and it always goes rapidly with my guests. It would be nice if TOH would correct the directions where it just says "mix asparagus with............" although it's obvious what to do."
