Steamed Asparagus

Every year my family looks forward to late spring/early summer, when farmer’s markets are spilling over with freshly harvested asparagus. For a delightful vegetable side dish, try steaming the asparagus ahead of time, cooling them to room temperature, then when you’re ready to serve, drizzle Helyett’s Traditional French Vinaigrette onto asparagus and it’s done!

1 lb. of Asparagus

Wash asparagus.
Place asparagus in a steamer and steam until desired consistency (approximately 10 minutes). Place asparagus on serving platter and allow to cool to room temperature, or refrigerate for later use. Just prior to serving, drizzle approximately 1-2 Tbsps. of Helyett’s Traditional French Vinaigrette onto asparagus.

Note: Whether steamed, grilled or broiled, the flavor of fresh asparagus comes alive when accompanied with Helyett’s Traditional French Vinaigrette.
