I really enjoyed this. I served it at room temperature and made little asparagus bundles; I tied some chives around the middle of the asparagus :) I didn't add the 1.5 T of olive oil and I honestly think it was great without it. I also just did a quick sprinkling of the salt instead of a full 1/2 t. Will make this again. . .thanks Jan! Made for MAKE MY RECIPE.
