"Tender asparagus is marinated in a balsamic vinaigrette and sprinkled with tangy lemon zest and fresh parsley. This is a quick and easy side dish."

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Blanch asparagus just until tender, about 1 minute. Plunge into a bowl of cold water to cool. Drain asparagus and place in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour in vinaigrette and seal bag. Refrigerate at least 3 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  2. Just before serving, drain asparagus, reserving vinaigrette. Arrange on a serving platter and sprinkle with lemon zest, parsley, salt, and pepper. Serve reserved vinaigrette in a small dish on the side.

This is my favorite way to cook asparagus....hands down. I have eaten it both cold, as directed, as well as grilling or roasting the asparagus after marinating it for some time. All ways are go...

Great recipe for a veggie I usually add butter, salt and pepper. I used Ken's bottled light olive oil vinagrette and added balsamic vinegar...My family thought it was a tasty take on asparagus.

I think this would have been better for me if I had used a better balsamic vinaigrette dressing? I didn't really like eating them cold, either. I gave 4 stars b/c I didn't realize how easy it wa...

I didn't eat these, my husband beat me to it. He found them marinating in the fridge and gobbled up half of them at once. I only made a half batch. He finished off the rest a few hours later. ...

WONDERFUL!!! I made with my own mixture of balsamic, olive oil, dijon mustard, basil and sugar.
