  1. I added a little honey because my dressing was quite acidic. That balanced the flavor well.

    Has anyone served the leftovers next day at room temp? Does it hold up?

  2. This was so good! I roasted my asparagus with olive oil, salt and pepper and I also added a minced clove of garlic to the dressing. So good!

  3. Tried this with Red Wine vinegar and wasn’t a huge fan, but remade with Champaign Vinegar and it was delish!

  4. Very simple and delicious recipe. I like to have the asparagus a little softer and at room temperature. The vinaigrette was perfect. My dinner guests raved over this little salad.

    I made this for a dinner party (tripled it). I made the vinaigrette a day ahead and steamed the asparagus the afternoon of the party which eased dinner prep. I loved the results, as did my guests. I would definitely make it again!

  6. So delicious. I made this tonight along with your broiled tilapia with garlic dish–perfect combo. I had to use rice vinegar because I ran out of red wine vinegar; just as yummy. Thank you, as always, Gina! Congrats on your new home, too! xx
