Asparagus season is here! I could eat asparagus 3 times a day this time of year. The wonderful thing about this salad is it can be served warm or cold. Speaking of cold, what happen to spring! It is 32 degrees here this morning.
I'm linking this to Carole's Chatter - Food on Friday. Let's go visit!
Asparagus Sesame Salad
1 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus, cut into 2-inch pieces
3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons white wine vinegar or rice vinegar
4 teaspoons soy sauce
4 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted
Cook asparagus until just tender in a small amount of lightly salted water, 3-5 minutes. Drain well.
Meanwhile, whisk together in a small bowl the remaining ingredients.
Toss the asparagus with the dressing while warm. Servee warm or chilled.
