How to Make Asparagus with Green Peppercorn Sauce

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.
