My mom always served it raw with dill dip.

What a great idea Marianne. I'm trying that one!

You can also slice it diagonally in 1 inch pieces and lightly stir-fry. It takes on a bright green color, a crunchy texture and a somewhat nutty taste. If you chill it and throw it in a salad, it's hard to guess what it is.

A delicious creamy dip for cold or hot asparagus or even artichokes. It is also excellent on potatoes and other veggies.

Just curious. Do you still live in Jersey? How do you have an over flowing garden right now? Just planted today and I'm worried about the frost expected tonight.:(

This is one of my favorite ways to eat asparagus in the summer time! It has a bite, but not too much of one.

'Now that our six children are grown, they've started sharing recipes with me - and I love it,' beams Louisville, Kentucky reader Anna Kreymborg. 'This tasty way to prepare fresh asparagus - by roasting the spears, then serving them with a Dijon dressing at room temperature - came from our daughter.'

This is good with roasted asparagus, but I imagine you could just as easily eat this with raw asparagus.

The name says it all! Fresh asparagus is simmered with garlic and light cream, and served atop linguine pasta. Serve with shredded cheese, if desired.

Very good! I made some mods to the cooking methods but (I think) used the ingredients as listed.
