Prep:

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

24
spears of fresh asparagus
1/2 c
chunky salsa
2 Tbsp
chopped cilantro (i prefer fresh)
1 clove
garlic - chopped
4
green onions, chopped
6 oz
softened cream cheese (i use low fat)
1
lime juice (i use about half a lime)
sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place the asparagus in a pot with enough water to cover the asparagus. Bring to a boil, and cook 5 - 6 minutes, until tender but firm. Drain, and rinse with cold water. Remove as much excess water as possible.
2
Place the asparagus, salsa, cilantro, cream cheese, garlic, lime juice, green onions, salt and pepper in a food processor or blender, and process to desired consistency - I set mine to puree. Refrigerate 1 hour, or until chilled, before serving.
