A+ in concept, B in execution, A for presentation! Almost makes a better side than app. Tastes great, but is rather messy to put together and to eat. Agree took longer than I expected to cut and wrap the salmon strips as it was difficult to cut the salmon in thin strips. I had thinner asparagus so clumped 2-3 spears together.

Use hearty asparagus spears for this easy appetizer. You can blanch the asparagus and combine the sour cream substitute, dill, and tarragon up to a day ahead and refrigerate separately.
