Asparagus with Dijon Vinaigrette

Asparagus is one of the few vegetables that my kids love so we cook it all the time for dinner around here. Here is a recipe I got from Gina’s Weight Watcher recipes that John and I love to add a little kick to our asparagus. It’s only .25 WW points…if you’re counting.

Asparagus with Dijon Vinaigrette


  • 2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley (I never have this on hand and it tastes fine without it)
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound asparagus, tough ends trimmed off


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk mustard, vinegar and 1 tbsp oil. Add parsley and season with salt and pepper. Saute asparagus in a tiny bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper for 5-6 minutes or until tender.Transfer asparagus to a serving dish and drizzle with the vinaigrette. Can be served warm or chilled.

  1. Hey Christy,
    I have been meaning to leave a comment for you for a while because I use your food blog ALL of the time! I have used several of your recipes and have LOVED them all! Right now I am making the pretzel jello for sunday dinner, which has been one of my favorite recipes for a long time but reading your post reminded me about it and I have been craving it since. I make mine with raspberries but the strawberries are delicious too! Thanks for all the great recipes!
