Serves: 2
  • 1 lb asparagus, trimmed and stalks peeled
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt and pepper
Dijon Mustard & Caper Dressing
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh parsley, minced
  • 2 tbsp capers, roughly chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Toss trimmed asparagus in olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast for about 8-10 minutes - this provides a tender, yet crisp asparagus spear. If you like yours more well done, cook for an additional few minutes.
  3. While asparagus cooks, mix the lemon juice, white wine vinegar and garlic together in a small bowl. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes.
  4. Add in the remaining ingredients, except of the olive oil, to the lemon juice mixture. Stir to combine.
  5. While whisking, drizzle the olive oil into the dressing. Continuously whisking during the addition of the oil will help ensure the dressing stays emulsified.
  6. Drizzle the dressing over the hot asparagus and serve immediately!
