1 1/2 teaspoons

Delicious and makes for a delightful summer treat.
I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil....it was delicious!
Has a delicate flavor that enhances the asparagus without overpowering it.
I use a similar recipe all the time but I toss the aparagus in the oil and seasonings, put it on cookie sheet and bake at 375 for about 8-10 minutes. It is much better, the seasoning permeates the asparagus while it cooks.
Made this an hour ahead and put the dressing on after arranging the asparagus in a fancy pie dish. Slipped it in the fridge and served it COLD - YUMMY
This was really good. I roasted the asparagus but that takes some more oil so the end result was a little more oil than I normally like so next time I will steam them.
WOW this was a different take on asparagus, I think the dressing was almost like a pesto, in fact...if I make it again, I'm going to turn the dressing into a pesto. Thanks for sharing!
This was super tasty and went really well with Wasabi Mayo Salmon!
