Comments

This is a great appetizer or side dish even your kids will love! For Vegan...use a vegannaise and substitute agave nectar for the honey.

Ingredients

1 pound asparagus, fresh

1/3 cup mayonnaise, light or reduced fat

2 teaspoons sesame oil, dark, or more if desired

2 teaspoons soy sauce, low sodium

2 teaspoons honey, or agave nectar

1 teaspoon vinegar, rice, seasoned

Preparation

Clean asparagus and cut tough ends off. Place about 6 cups of water in a large pot. Bring water to a boil and add salt. Drop asparagus into the boiling water and cook for only about 1 minute or so until crisp tender. Remove asparagus and place in a pitcher or large bowl of ice-water to stop the cooking process and retain brightness of color. Drain asparagus, place on a serving platter. For the sauce, mix remaining ingredients and serve in a small bowl next to the asparagus. Chill until ready to serve.
