Robin, your recipe was absolutely wonderful and received rave reviews this Easter. I followed the recipe pretty closely with just a couple of exceptions, steamed asparagus instead of boiling and used honey in place of agave, and just a little more than the recipe called for. I marinated this overnight, turning the bag every so often. It was delicious. A great spring/summer side and I'll use this many more times. Thanks for sharing your recipe with AR.
