Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

5 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1/2 medium
red bell pepper, roasted, peeled and chopped or sliced into strips
1 Tbsp
*green peppercorns in brine, drained and coarsely chopped
salt, to taste
freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
1- 1 1/2 lb
fresh asparagus spears

SAUCE:

2 Tbsp
mayonnaise
2 Tbsp
white wine vinegar
1/2 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce
3 Tbsp
extra virgin olive oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
SAUCE: Whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Whisk in the olive oil in a slow and steady stream. Add salt and pepper to taste, and refrigerate for about 1 hour, if possible, to allow flavors to develop (may be prepared up to 24 hours ahead; bring to room temperature to serve).

*I added a teaspoon of the green peppercorn brine to the sauce and used slightly less white wine vinegar to compensate.
2
Prepare the asparagus: You can roast, grill/pan grill, gently steam or lightly sautè the asparagus.
3
Arrange the cooked asparagus on a serving platter. Spoon the sauce over the vegetables. Place the roasted red bell pepper chunks/strips on the sauce followed by the chopped green peppercorns. Finish with a light sprinkle of cracked black pepper and serve.
