An excellent way to serve asparagus either as a side dish or as part of an antipasto. You'll need a few hours to marinate the asparagus to get the best taste.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 kilo fresh asparagus, woody ends broken off and cut into 5cm pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) balsamic salad dressing
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Blanch asparagus just until tender, about 1 minute. Plunge into a bowl of cold water to cool. Drain asparagus and place in a bowl or container. Pour on vinaigrette and cover or seal the bowl or container. Refrigerate at least 3 hours, stirring occasionally.
  2. Just before serving, drain asparagus, reserving vinaigrette. Arrange on a serving platter and sprinkle with lemon zest, parsley, salt and pepper. Serve reserved vinaigrette in a small dish or jug on the side.
