Asparagus With Strawberry Vinaigrette Recipe

Step 1

Trim asparagus and cut each stalk in thirds. Steam until tender but still crisp. (Thin young stalks took 5 minutes.) Plunge in ice water; drain.

Step 2

Wash strawberries, then hull. Cut strawberries in half; combine with asparagus.

Step 3

Combine dressing ingredients; toss asparagus and strawberries gently with dressing. Chill well before serving.

Step 4

The authors write: "What could be simpler - or more delicious - than spring's first asparagus combined with spring's first strawberries?"

My notes: Good, and simple.
