Asparagus With Fragrant Lemon Dressing

"I found this recipe a while back on an asparagus site, but altered it a little to suit the family.. I have served this both hot and cold, and both ways are work and taste equally as well. So this recipe can be served hot as a entre side or main, or cold as a side salad."

Delightfully delicious! I served this hot and used the wholegrain mustard option and used meyer lemon. Made the dressing earlier in the day so it had time for the flavours to mingle which produced a bright and citrusy dressing. Will be making this again and again. Thank you for sharing Tisme!
