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!

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.
