Category: Salads, French, Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 1 bn Fresh asparagus; steaned or
  • -boiled
  • 1 Bottle good quality salad
  • -oil or olive oil
  • 1 Bottle wine vinegar, red,
  • -white or champagne
  • Salt and freshly ground

Place asparagus on a platter and let cool to room temperature.

Pass the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper around the table. Pour some oil
(about 2 T) and some vinegar (about 1 t) onto each plate. (Place a fork
underneath the top of your plate, tilting the plate gently toward you, and
pour the vinaigrette into the bottom of each plate.) Sprinkle with salt
and pepper.

Serve the asparagus. Pick up a piece of asparagus from the platter with
your hands and stir the vinaigrette with it a little before popping the tip
in your mouth. Continue stirring and eating until you get to the tougher
bottom part of the stem. Start over with a new piece, adding more oil and
vinegar as needed. Pass finger bowls or damp towels after this entree!
