This versatile recipe made with fresh asparagus can be made year around. Serve it cold or warm as side with any meal.

My favorite way to serve this is grilling it. It produces rave reviews every time. Even from guests who may not be fans of asparagus.

Snap off the tough ends of asparagus and wash asparagus thoroughly. Note: You can leave the spears whole or snap into 1-Inch pieces.
Cook asparagus in boiling water for about two minutes, until it’s bright green and just beginning to get tender; drain and blanch in ice water. Place the cooked asparagus in a shallow serving dish.
Combine the marinade ingredients: the vegetable oil, white vinegar, chopped pimiento's, garlic, parsley flakes, salt, pepper, and mustard powder, in a jar or other leak-proof container; cover tightly and shake well.
Pour over the asparagus, cover, and chill for at least 4 hours before serving.
Cook's Tip:
The vinaigrette in this recipe is quite zesty. If you would like it sweeter, replace the white vinegar with a quality balsamic.
This is great heated. Mix the marinade ingredients. Omit boiling the asparagus. Heat a large skillet on stove top, toss asparagus with marinade. Add to skillet and cook until crisp-tender. This is wonderful cooked on the grill using a aluminum pan.
Give this dish a citrus flair by replacing the garlic with orange/lemon zest.
