Make the sauce up to 2 days ahead, and prepare the asparagus the morning you plan to serve it.
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 pounds fresh asparagus
Garnish: lemon rind strips
How to Make It
Stir together first 7 ingredients in a small bowl; cover and chill at least 1 hour.
Snap off tough ends of asparagus; arrange asparagus in a steamer basket over boiling salted water. Cover and steam 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Plunge asparagus into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain.
Arrange asparagus on a serving platter. Serve with Dill Sauce. Garnish, if desired.
Very yummy. I used reduced calorie mayo and non-fat sour cream and it tasted great. I didn't have onion powder so minced about 1T of onion and used about 2T of fresh dill. A friend took the recipe with her to fix tomorrow.
