Roasted Spring Asparagus with Balsamic Vinaigrette

on Monday, 16 December 2013. Posted in Salads & Dressings, Vegetable & Side Dishes, Recipes

It doesn't have to be spring asparagus, but we just adore those first stalks.

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus, cleaned & trimmed as needed
  • good extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • balsamic vinegar
  • Dijon mustard

Directions

Toss the trimmed asparagus with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt & pepper. Roast in a 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, until tender.

In a small bowl, whisk together 3 parts olive oil, one part balsamic vinegar, and one half part Dijon mustard. Sprinkle in salt & pepper to taste.

Allow the asparagus to cool to room temperature and drizzle with vinaigrette.
