Asparagus with White Garlic Truffle Vinaigrette
2 tablespoons Olio White Truffle Garlic Olive Oil
1 1/2 tablespoons Olio Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tablespoon Olio Cava Vinegar
1/4 teaspoon fresh-squeeze lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Olio Himalayan Sea Salt
Few grindings of black pepper, to taste
2 lbs. asparagus stalks, washed and trimmed
- In a small bowl, whisk together Olio White Truffle Garlic Olive Oil, Olio Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Olio Cava Vinegar, lemon juice, Olio Himalayan Sea Salt , and black pepper; set aside or refrigerate until ready to use. NOTE: If refrigerating, bring to room temperature before using.
- Blanch the asparagus in lightly salted boiling water for about 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; do not overcook. Remove from heat and shock in an ice bath (to retain the bright green color). Drain well and pat dry.
- Toss asparagus with enough truffle vinaigrette to lightly coat. Arrange asparagus on serving platter or individual serving plates
