Southern Living, one of my favorite magazines, has given us this delightful new take on asparagus. It may not look very different, but your tastebuds will tell you otherwise. Freshly grated ginger, Dijon mustard and a hint of orange juice awaken this sometimes boring vegetable. If you have any left over, cut it up and add it to your next tossed salad, or even better, to scrambled eggs.
If you’re looking for other ways to be creative with asparagus, try SL's Asparagus Pesto for a real treat.
