Marinated Asparagus Salad Recipe
Makes 4 servings
2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut on the diagonal into 2-inch pieces
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1 red bell pepper, diced
In a large saucepan, bring salted water to a boil. Add asparagus and cook until crisp-tender – about 4 minutes.
While the water is boiling, mix vinegar, olive oil, mustard, marjoram, and garlic in a large bowl. Add cooked asparagus and red pepper and mix. Cool and refrigerate for when you are ready to serve. This will keep well in your fridge for up to 6 days.
