I had some left over asparagus from Father's Day and really got a hankering for some cold asparagus. Even better was the look of disappointment on C's face when he took a bite. And then he exclaimed "they're cold!" Um, yeh, that is the point...
Needless to say he didn't have another spear. To his credit, I have made this several times before and he never likes it.
Chilled Asparagus with Balsamic Vinaigrette
1/2 pound asparagus, ends trimmed
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon minced onion
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
fresh cracked black pepper
Bring a small pot of salted water to a boil. Boil asparagus for 2 to 3 minutes, remove from the pot and immediately place in a bowl of ice water. Drain asparagus.
Combine vinegar, oil, onion and garlic. Whisk. Pour vinaigrette over asparagus and sprinkle with pepper. Chill until ready to serve.
