If you love asparagus, this will be your favorite new recipe. It’s fresh and bright and amazing. What could be better than combing the season’s most delicious vegetable with citrus, garlic and herbs? Our dear friend and fellow foodie, Pam Lightfoot Burrell served this asparagus with a crisp white, some creamy cheese and crusty bread, to start the evening off at one of her recent dinner parties. I think all the guests would agree that she could have sent us home without the sublime dinner that followed and we would have been happy.
So the next time you are considering what to serve during cocktails, remember this dish. It is also of course the perfect side dish for any meal! Serve it with bread and plenty of extra sauce. After we ate up all the bread we all dove in, to finish the remaining sauce with spoons. It was actually a bit embarrassing how zealously we devoured the asparagus and sauce considering dinner was forthcoming. We justified it by convincing ourselves that an extra serving, or two, or three of veggies never hurt anyone. Bravo Pam!
