Wrapped Asparagus

Jeannie Marlinghaus


This is an easy appetizer that looks and tastes fabulous. I have made it without the prosciutto as well. Excellent both ways. You can use low fat blue cheese to cut out some calories. Enjoy!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This would be good without the prosciutto... but it's GREAT with it! The dressing is a nice addition and would work great on other veggies too. The blue cheese tops the asparagus perfectly.
