 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Asparagus
  • 1/2 c Olive oil
  • 2 tb Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/4 c White wine vinegar
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Shallots peeled, finely
  • -chopped
  • 2 tb Minced fresh tarragon


This simple dish has such a compelling taste, you'll never have
leftovers. Trim the asparagus, discarding woody ends. Steam the
spears whole, for about 3 or 4 minutes, until just tender when
pierced with a fork. Do not overcook. Rinse in cold water, drain.

Place the olive oil in a small bowl; add the mustard and beat until
the oil thickens. Add the vinegar, salt pepper, shallots and
tarragon. Arrange the still-warm asparagus on a serving plate and
pour the dressing over it.

Serves 3 or 4.
