"For a really nice change of pace. You can really use whatever type of mustard you like. Maybe not the yellow mustard, though."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Remove the woody ends of the asparagus by cutting them off or by bending in half and letting the hard end snap off. Wash the asparagus. Set aside.

Step 2

Prepare an ice bath in a large bowl.

Step 3

Add about 1/2 inch of water to a wide skillet. Bring to a simmer. Add the asparagus and cook for 3 minutes (5 minutes if they are fat ones). Don't overcook, they should still have a lot of bite! Drain and transfer the asparagus to the ice bath to stop the cooking. Drain and blot dry. Place in a rectangular container.

Step 4

Prepare the dressing: Zest the orange and add to a mixing bowl. Squeeze the juice - you'll need 2 tablespoons. Put the juice in the mixing bowl. Add the mustard, thyme leaves, and salt. Whisk to combine. Whisk in the olive oil in a steady stream.

Step 5

Pour the dressing over the asparagus. Turn to coat the spears. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour. Will keep in fridge for 3 days.
