The asparagus should be steamed. The lid's weight helps contain the steam. The steamer is a combo steamer/pasta kettle I found at Williams-Sonoma.
Use one or two bundles of asparagus
Cut off 1" to 2" from the ends
Boil the water
Place the asparagus in the steamer basket. Place the basket over the steamer & cover.
Steam for four minutes - exactly
After four minutes remove the asparagus from the steam. Shower with cool water until the asparagus can be handled comfortably
Garlic & vinegar are essential.
The asparagus and marinade are to combined and stored in a gallon size zip loc bag.
Place the asparagus in the zip loc bag
Add the bottle of marinade
Seal up the zip loc & refrigerate! Serve chilled. Crumbled feta cheese on top is a nice touch. Enjoy!
