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.
Asparagus With Dill Sauce
Make the sauce up to 2 days ahead, and prepare the asparagus the morning you plan to serve it.
