Servings 4


  • 2 packages thin asparagus
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan


  • Bring a pot of water to boil. Prepare a second bowl with ice water.
  • While you are waiting on the boil, snap the woody ends off the bottom of the asparagus.
  • Blanch the asparagus by submerging it in the boiling water for 30 seconds. Quickly remove and put asparagus in an ice bath to prevent overcooking.
  • Cut the asparagus into 3 inch long pieces.
  • Make the dressing by whisking the lemon juice, olive oil, red wine vinegar, mustard, honey, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  • Toss the asparagus in the dressing and parmesan cheese.
