Asparagus with Lemon Vinaigrette

A handy Spring recipe when asparagus is in season and inexpensive.



  1. In a jar or bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper.
  2. Store, covered, overnight in the refrigerator. Serve at room temperature.
  3. Blanch the asparagus in lightly-salted boiling water for about 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; do not overcook.
  4. Remove from heat and refresh under cold water; drain well.
  5. Toss asparagus with enough lemon vinaigrette to lightly coat.
  6. Arrange asparagus on serving platter or individual serving plates.
  7. Note: need to allow time for the dressing to season so best prepare it the day before use.

Very good flavor, easy prep and but since the olive oile adds fat, I just drizzle the marinade and skip the overnight soak.
