Honeyed Asparagus Bundles

This recipe is from Women’s World magazine. I love tarragon, and it works so well with asparagus. Fresh tarragon isn’t always available at a reasonable expense, so I used dried tarragon. Be sure to half the amount of tarragon if you use dried. I found that it was best if I made the dressing before I started the main dish, so that it could sit and blend.

Recipes serves 8


2 lemons

1 Tbs. Dijon mustard

1 tsp. honey

2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbs. chopped fresh tarragon

  5. Remove asparagus from steamer basket when done and season with salt and pepper. Drizzles with sauce.
