  1. Set asparagus spears onto paper towels to absorb excess liquid. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, onion and seasoning salt. Remove crusts from bread slices, and spread mayonnaise mixture thinly on each slice. Place a spear onto the slice and roll up. Cut each roll in half, and arrange on a serving tray. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until serving.

After reading other reviews, I decided to make this recipe using fresh steamed asparagus. I also added an 8 oz. container of light garden vegetable cream cheese to the mayo along with one chopped scallion. Wrapped the asparagus in very thin sliced ham as well. Delicious!!

I was dissapointed in these. I think if I made them again I would use fresh asparagus instead. The canned kind was too mushy. It also seemed to be missing something to give it that extra zip.

I made these for my friend's baby shower. They turned out pretty well and I got a lot of compliments. They are a little time-consuming to put together, but not inordinately, and are otherwise simple and easy. I used shallots in the mayonaise mixture instead of regular onion. I am making them again for my sister's wedding shower next month, and I think I will use fresh, steamed asparagus. There's nothing better than fresh asparagus, and canned can be just too mushy. Most kids wouldn't go anywhere near these.

I liked the recipe a lot, but something was missing. I buttered the bread, used chives instead of onion, and added chopped pimento. I served 60 of these at a party for a friend who had just passed the bar exam, and they were gone before all the guests had arrived! Everyone wanted the recipe.

This is a very good starter recipe! I made these for a dear friend's baby shower. I used seasoning salt, and a scallion, but I also wrapped the asparagus with bacon. It turned out fantastic! Everyone wanted more!

I made these sandwiches for a club function and they were a huge success. I've been asked for several repeat performances. Easy, quick and delicious!

While I've never been a fan of seasoned salt OR canned asparagus, I thought I'd give this recipe a shot. I did use sauteed asparagus(in OO) and it came out very good! I was very surprised with the seasoning salt, added a tasty touch to the mayo. I didn't make the rolled sandwiches, but a regular sandwich. I also used a bit of lettuce in the sandwich as well.

I thought they were just okay, however out of all the things that were served, I heard everyone commenting on how good these I guess they are pretty good. I will make again.
