I rarely take shortcuts but this is one I always do for a party and it is a time saver & a great appetizer. How can you go wrong, right?
1-2 lbs of fresh asparagus, washed and trimmed (bottoms)
1 container of a good quality Italian dressing
Place the asparagus in a ziploc and pour the entire bottle of dressing over top. Seal and refrigerate for 4-6 hours. Remove and plate. So good, unbelievably easy. I always plate with other things, olives, tomatoes – I also served my marinated mozzarella skewers with this on the side.
