Sauteed Asparagus with Dijon Vinaigrette

Sauteed Asparagus with Dijon Vinaigrette

I wanted to find a simple but different recipe for the asparagus I had in the refrigerator.  I stumbled upon this recipe from Martha Stewart and decided to give it a try.  I adapted it a bit by adding a little garlic and sugar to the vinaigrette.  I loved the flavor the vinaigrette gave to the asparagus and it turned out really delicious.  This side dish paired nicely with the Apricot-Soy Pork Chops.

Sauteed Asparagus with Dijon Vinaigrette

Whisk together mustard, vinegar, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, garlic, sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and sugar, to taste, in a small bowl.

Heat a skillet that has been coated in cooking spray over medium heat. Add asparagus, and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring frequently, until asparagus are just tender, 5-6 minutes.

Drizzle the asparagus with the vinaigrette, toss, and serve immediately. Enjoy.
