Asparagus Dijon
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2  pounds  asparagus spears or two 10-ounce packages frozen asparagus spears
  • 1/4  cup  whipping cream
  • 2  tablespoons  mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 2  tablespoons  sliced green onion (1)
  • 3 - 4  teaspoons  Dijon-style mustard
  • 1  hard-cooked egg, finely chopped (optional)
Directions

1. Snap off and discard woody bases from fresh asparagus (see photo, below). If desired, scrape off scales. Cook fresh asparagus, covered, in a small amount of boiling water for 4 to 6 minutes or till crisp-tender. (Or, cook frozen asparagus according to the package directions.) Drain; keep warm.

2. Meanwhile, for sauce, beat whipping cream just till stiff peaks form. Fold in mayonnaise, green onion, mustard, and, if desired, egg. Spoon sauce atop asparagus. Serve immediately. Makes 6 servings.
