Spring Asparagus Recipe

This vibrant side dish is a delightful addition to any meal. Whether served warm or chilled, the homemade dressing will always garner compliments.


  • 1-1/2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces.
  • Two small tomatoes, cut into wedges.
  • Three tablespoons of cider vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • One tablespoon grated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted.
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese, optional.


  • Preparing the asparagus is a breeze. In a large saucepan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook, covered, until it reaches the perfect crisp-tender texture, which usually takes 3-5 minutes. Drain and place in a large bowl. Add the tomatoes, cover, and keep warm.
  • Place vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, onion, salt, and paprika in a blender; cover and process until smooth. While processing, gradually add oil in a steady stream. Toss with the asparagus mixture, topping with almonds and, if desired, cheese.
