  • Servings: 4


  • 1 1/4 pounds asparagus, trimmed and stems peeled if thick (about 20 spears)
  • 1 large lemon, very thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Dill-Shallot Vinaigrette
  • Fresh dill, for garnish


  1. Place asparagus spears in the top of a steamer over boiling water. Steam for 2 to 3 minutes for thin asparagus, 5 to 6 minutes for thick.

  2. Meanwhile, arrange 4 lemon slices on each of 4 serving plates. Remove asparagus from steamer and season with salt and pepper. Divide spears among the plates, drizzle vinaigrette over the top, and garnish with dill.
