Asparagus are in season in some parts of the US. Here in New York, they are the cheapest (about $2.99 a pound) they'll be all year. According to a few of your comments
about side dishes to go with Easter ham, asparagus are high up on the list.
We agree. And while we usually roast our asparagus with a little olive oil and salt, we're thinking about the fresh, bright green color we get when we blanch and chill them. Another benefit of serving asparagus cold? You can make them ahead of time.
On a side note: Did you know asparagus are part of the lily family? How Easter-appropriate!
