Marinated Asparagus Salad

  • 2 lbs Fresh Asparagus               
  • ½ c Pecans-Chopped-toasted           
  • 1 T Green Onions


  • ¼ c Rice Vinegar      
  • ¼ c. Soy Sauce         
  • 2 Tbsp. Sesame Oil      
  • 2 tsp. Sugar     
  • Salt & Pepper

     Wash and clean asparagus.  Blanch asparagus for 1-2 minutes.  Drain.  Cool with cold water.  Cut-into bite size pieces.  Set aside.

      In a sealable plastic bag or bowl place ingredients for dressing.  Seal and mix thoroughly.  Add the asparagus.  Marinate for 12- 24 hours.    Mix several times during marinating.

     Before serving add pecans and green onions.

Variations:  Use olive oil in place of sesame seed oil.  Use chives instead of green onions.    Add finely chopped garlic to dressing or add sesame seeds.  This makes a great marinade for other vegetables as well.
