Meanwhile, bring enough water, that will cover asparagus, and 1 Tbsp. of the lemon juice to boil in a pot. Add asparagus and cook until just tender, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Add asparagus to the sesame citrus sauce and toss to coat. Serve hot drizzled with a little more of the sauce and garnish with toasted sesame seeds if desired.

Hollandaise sauce is high fat high calorie but I wanted a way to make asparagus have the flavor of it without all the junk. I played around and came up with this simple dressing.

Blanch the asparagus in the water until tender. Drain. Add olive oil or butter and toss. Gently sprinkle the lemon juice over top then add salt and pepper, toss quickly one more time. Serve right away.

Easy and flavorful! The easiest way to grill asparagus is to thread several asparagus spears on to two parallel soaked wooden skewers and repeat, if necessary, until all are skewered before coating with the oil mixture.

I'm an asparagus lover, so I like it fixed most any way. This is a great side dish and I think the eggs and cheese really add to it.

In the South, we don't always get enough asparagus to have a full meal because it doesn't quite like to grow as good as in the North.

Another flavor for asparagus because I love asparagus ;-) Bring water to boil and cook asparagus over medium heat until crisp but tender. Mix honey, mustard, lemon juice and olive oi in small bowl. Drizzle mixture over cooked and drained asparagus and serve.
