8 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces asparagus)

Green beans work just as well as asparagus if the latter are no longer in season. Steam and refrigerate the asparagus a day ahead; arrange on a platter with the other ingredients a couple of hours before dinner.

How to Make It

Step 1

Snap off tough ends of asparagus. Steam asparagus, covered, 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Plunge asparagus into ice water; drain. Place asparagus on a large platter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle with oil.

Step 2

Combine parsley and the remaining ingredients. Sprinkle over asparagus, tossing gently.

Garlic press

I found it was better with putting the garlic through a press. Just minced I had to leave the garlic in the oil for a while to get a galic flavor. It is a really good veg. side dish

Delicious recipe. I have been requested to make asparagus this way from now on, no exceptions. Very vibrant and colorful. I used a little extra lemon peel. Wonderful side dish.
