This beautiful dish looks great served on a white platter. To save work I grill the asparagus in the oven on a white oven proof platter, decorate it with the sauce and serve. Quick and easy and yet very fancy.

Ingredients:
1 bunch asparagus
freshly ground pepper
1 tspn olive oil

Remove the tough part from the bottom of the asparagus. Place on an oven proof serving platter. Dribble with olive oil and sprinkle with pepper. Place in the oven on grill setting. After 2-3 minutes the asparagus will turn bright green. Remove from the oven, decorate with the sauce and serve.

Note: I like to decorate the asparagus with a swirling “S” pattern.

Sauce:

1 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tspn vinegar
1 tspn olive oil

Mix well until smooth.
