This a different twist on one of my favorite vegetables. Since I was heading to a summer bbq, I wanted to make something refreshing and cool. these would also be good with a little bit of onion, feta cheese or even pine nuts.
- 1 lb asparagus
- 4 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 Tbsp dijon mustard
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp each basil, oregano, parsley and garlic powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- In a large saucepan line the bottom with water. Bring water to boil. Add asparagus and boil. Heat until bright green or can easily be punctured with a fork. About 5 minutes.
- Toss asparagus in strainer and run cool water over until cool to touch.
- In a small bowl combine all other ingredients and whisk together.
- Combine and serve.
