Comments on this Recipe

I just tried this dressing and it is fab!!! So simple yet so delicious.

Simply delicious! Very easy to make. I often make roasted or grilled asparagus and this sauce is lovely drizzled on top. It is light yet adds a bright, fresh flavor to the asparagus. This recipe is definitely going into my regular rotation.
