It's Paula Deen time again here! My husband made this marinated asparagus salad that he found on the Food Network site. It is very tasty as long as you enjoy your vegetables marinated. I love marinated artichokes but found the asparagus just okay. My husband felt the same way. Don't get me wrong - this is a good recipe but you just have to enjoy having asparagus this way. This would make a terrific appetizer, especially for when the weather is warm. It's pretty simple too.
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cooked, or 1 1/2 (15 ounce)cans whole green asparagus spears (I cannot eat canned asparagus - no way!)
1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon leaves
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 (0.7 ounce) package Italian salad dressing mix, prepared according to package directions
1/4 cup tarragon vinegar
Drain the asparagus and layer it in a shallow glass dish. Sprinkle each layer with some crumbled tarragon, pepper, to taste and garlic salt. Pour the salad dressing and vinegar over the asparagus, cover and refrigerate overnight. Serve chilled asparagus on lettuce leaves, topped with a dollop of mayonnaise flavored with a little of the dressing.
Over the past few weeks I have received two awards from fellow food bloggers. I am always so flattered to receive these awards. It really thrills me that people enjoy visiting my blog. I never would have thought I would enjoy blogging this much.
Anyhow, I would just like to thank Lynette from
