Sauteed Asparagus with Dijon Vinaigrette

My hubby and I both really loved this side dish and it was pretty quick and easy. I got it from Martha Stewart’s website: www.marthastewart.com.

Prep: 5 minutes

Cook: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons sherry or red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound thin asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2 1/2-inch lengths

Directions:

Whisk together mustard, vinegar, and 1 tablespoon oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add asparagus, and season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring frequently, until asparagus are just tender, 10 to 12 minutes. (If the spears begin to brown, reduce heat to low). Transfer asparagus to a serving dish. Drizzle with the vinaigrette, toss, and serve immediately.

Serves: 2-4 depending on portions

Yumm!
