Asparagus Salad with Balsamic Glace Dressing

 1 lb fresh asparagus (not pencil thin)
 1 tbsp finely chopped shallots
 1 clove garlic, finely minced
 1 tbsp minced marjoram or oregano
 1 tbsp dijon mustard
 2 tbsp Colavita Balsamic Glaze
 3 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Peel the asparagus and trim off the tough ends.


Prepare an ice bath in a bowl. In a skillet, bring some well salted water to a boil, add the asparagus and simmer until just tender (because the asparagus are peeled, this should take 2 - 3 minutes, do not overcook); immediately remove the asparagus to the ice bath, allow to cool completely, then set on paper towels to drain and dry.


Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients, mix well. Place the asparagus in a serving dish, toss with the dressing and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.


Toss again, adjust seasonings and serve cold or at room temperature.
