Tender-crisp asparagus doesn't need a lot of extras to make it taste good...but you should try this brightly flavored dressing that highlights the asparagus without overpowering it.

    Asparagus with Citrus Dressing

    This was easy and yummy! I haven't added the egg yet, and I substituted vegetable oil for olive oil and it still tastes great! Try it with broccoli... my husband loved it!!
