Yield:

Ingredients:
1 1/2 pound fresh asparagus
1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions:
1. Trim asparagus. In a large pan bring water to a simmer. Add asparagus and cook approximately 3 minutes. Immediately immerse cooked asparagus in ice water to stop cooking and set color.

3. Arrange asparagus on a serving dish. Drizzle with vinaigrette and serve immediately.

Note: This recipe makes more vinaigrette than you will need. Store extra vinaigrette in the refrigerator up to one week. Also good tossed with a green salad or used as a marinade.
