A very different and delicious way to serve asparagus. I served it over field greens and made as written. I did make the sauce ahead of time and heated it briefly in the microwave before adding the asparagus and raspberries. It was a good side dish to barbequed spareribs, but would be just as good with any entree. Definitely company worthy.
Serve this unusual side dish on a bed of greens or with pork tenderloin flavored with balsamic vinegar, rosemary, and garlic.
