Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
How to Test For Doneness
Pierce the thickest part of the asparagus with the tip of sharp knife or fork. The asparagus is done when the stalk is just tender and meets the knife with slight resistance. Do not overcook the asparagus as this will cause the asparagus to become mushy.
Tip 2
Variation
To serve hot, cook the asparagus as directed; drain. Drizzle with the dressing and serve warm.
Tip 3
Alternate Cooking Methods
Choose one of the following options: Grill: Spray grill grate or grill screen with cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Toss asparagus with 2 Tbsp. of the dressing. Place on screen or thread on soaked wooden skewers. Grill 4 to 6 min. or until crisp-tender, turning occasionally. Stir-Fry: Diagonally cut asparagus spears into 1-1/2-inch lengths. Heat 2 Tbsp. of the dressing in wok or skillet on high heat. Add asparagus; stir-fry 2 min. Add 1/4 cup water or broth; reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 2 to 3 min. or until crisp-tender. Roast: Place asparagus in foil-lined shallow baking pan. Toss with 2 Tbsp. of the dressing. Bake at 450°F for 10 to 15 min. or until crisp-tender, turning occasionally.
