“This is the Runner-Up recipe for 1987 in the San Francisco Chronicle. Because sesame oil is such an integral part of the dressing, be sure you use fresh oil of the highest quality. This asparagus makes a perfect accompaniment to grilled, broiled or fried salmon fillets or steak. Toasted sesame seeds sprinkled over the asparagus just before serving are a nice touch. Other vegetables, such as green beans, work well with this dressing. From Bruce Cost.”
