Steamed Asparagus with Lemon Vinaigrette

This asparagus recipe from The Best Recipe is my favorite way to eat asparagus.  In fact, I don’t think I even like asparagus until I tried it this way, and now I appreciate this crispy vegetable in all sorts of recipes.


1 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. Tabasco sauce
2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
salt and ground black pepper
1 recipe Steamed Asparagus

1. Whisk lemon juice, mustard, and Tabasco together in a small bowl. Whisk in oil until dressing is smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

2. Prepare asparagus and place on a platter when cooked.  Rewhisk dressing and drizzle over asparagus.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
