Honey Dijon Asparagus and Almonds Recipe

We have great respect for asparagus- it`s a nutrient-rich, versatile veggie that takes well to steaming, grilling, blanching or roasting - and while it`s a regular at our tables, we sometimes want to dress it up a bit. The fleshy green spears are easily enhanced with the addition of this honey Dijon vinaigrette, a light tangy dressing that perfectly balances the sweet with savory. To gussy things up even more, the tender-crisp stalks are sprinkled with lightly toasted almonds, providing a nutty crunch in every bite. Who knew that 6 inches growing out of the dirt could be so dignified? More

My sister is the Michaelangelo of mealtime, a renaissance woman who can take a classic Tuscan dish and reshape it into modern and mouth-watering fare. Take for example panzanella salad, a rustic bread and tomato salad.
