What a nice, lively, spring dish to accompany salmon cakes for lunch. The only change I would suggest is to use fresh tarragon, which enhances the delicate flavor beautifully. Thank you Jill815!
Usually I can take or leave asparagus, but I made this for company with the dressing on the side-in case they were purists. This was the best asparagus I've ever tasted! Washed, dried, broke the stalks where they bent. Broiling is the only way I'll do them now. Thank you for submitting this recipe.
Awesome! I did grill 2 huge bunches of pencil thin asparagus and made the dressing (tripled it) on the side. When the asparagus was done, I tossed it with the dressing....everyone loved it! The dijon, tarragon, shallots, etc...delicious...will make again!
Hubs and I both enjoyed this lovely and different, piquant dressing. Very richly flavored, and really dresses up the asparagus. Great blend of flavors that resemble Bearnaise sauce. I wasn't real crazy about the asparagus broiled, but Hubs loved it. All and all, a memorable and elegant vegetable side dish.
This is really nice, tangy & light. I used about 1/4 of a red onion instead of shallot. The dressing is enough to coat the asparagus if tossed, but not really enough to "pour over" - which was fine. Thanks! I'll make this again. N*
Boy ate these up faster than I could say what kind of sauce dressed these asparagus - high praise for a green vegetable in this household. Delicious and simple! Make sure you truly coat each stalk in oil, rather than just drizzle. Drizzling results in crispy bits in places and mushy bits in others, which isn't all that spectacular.
I really liked this! I had never used tarragon before, so I was a little hesitant, but it came out tasting quite yummy. Thanks for a new way to make asparagus. N*R
I liked this sauce a lot! Kind of like a mixture of bearnaisse and hollandaise! I'll definitly be using this again TY. N*R.
