Summer Asparagus

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
  1. 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.
  2. Toss asparagus in strainer and run cool water over until cool to touch.
  3. In a small bowl combine all other ingredients and whisk together.
  4. Combine and serve.
