  1. 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!

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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

  6. Would this recipe work with tarragon

  7. Would this recipe work with tarragon?

  8. Gina – I love this Dijon vinaigrette and want to make a large serving of it for a big salad. Would you just double/triple each ingredient? 

  9. I agree…Gina, can you clarify, please? Thanks!

  10. I don't understand where the WW points come from. The only ingredient I see with any points value is the olive oil-3 points for the entire recipe. Can you clarify? Thanks!

  11. How do you think this sauce would be on oven-roasted asparagus?

  12. I'm confused on the serving size

  13. This was my first recipe from this website and it was great. As I am not a parsley fan I swapped it out with cilantro and added a touch of honey to take the edge off of the vinegar. Delicious!

  14. Will leaving out the olive oil, or cutting it down, change the taste?

  15. this was excellent! we love sauce so next time I'll double it. Oh and I didn't have parsley, but we don't like that anyhow. Thanks for the great and easy asparagus recipe!

  16. This was delicious! I had it with the Garlic Lover's Roast Beef and this sauce on the roast beef was delightful!

    Thank you!

  17. i'm making this tonight! i will blog about it fa sho!

  18. Is the .25 ww points for the points plus program?

  19. not sodium… asparagus. i don't care much for asparagus… lol sorry i have something else on my mind haha. no, I LOVE THIS! Best asparagus recipe ever!

  20. This is actually REALLY good. Love it!! I usually don't care that much for sodium, but this was really good and the leftovers the next day of it were even better… love it.

  21. We loved this side dish. So easy too! I usually microwave w/ just enough water to cover the asparagus for 4.5 minutes, and it has the perfect crunch to it.

  22. Made this tonight. Fantastic!!! Hubby loved it, too! Thanks!!!

  23. Just tried this recipe and it was delicious! Initially, I thought the red wine vinegar was too much….but it was PERFECT!! Thank you so much!

  24. Just came across this website and I can't wait to try some of these fabulous recipes! I love finding site with WW point value. Thank you!!
