Asparagus with Creole Mustard


Creole Asparagus 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons Creole mustard
  • 1/4 cup Champagne vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 green onions, white only, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely minced fresh tarragon
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed

Preparation:

In a small bowl, combine the Creole mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper. Whisk until well blended. Add the olive oil slowly, whisking constantly, until completely incorporated. Stir in the chopped green onions and tarragon. Let stand at room temperature while the asparagus is cooking.

Steam or grill the asparagus just until the spears can be easily pierced with a fork.

Arrange the warm asparagus on a serving plate and drizzle a small amount of the vinaigrette over the spears. Serves 4.
