Asparagus with lemon dijon mustard dressing

Serves   2
Prep time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 2 mins

Asparagus is often a hard dish to match with wine, Sauvignon Blanc always works well as its fresh herbaceous characters balance the flavour and texture of fresh asparagus.

  • Asparagus




  • Large bunch of Asparagus
  • Lemon juice
  • Dijon mustard
  • Olive Oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Salt


  1. Put 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard in a dessert bowl and slowly add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the mustard while whisking the mustard with a fork of whisk. The mustard will absorb the oil, if it starts to separate, keep whisking without adding more oil until the oil is absorbed. 
  2. Once all of the oil is absorbed add lemon juice to the mustard/oil mix until it has a rich, creamy lemon flavour. 
  3. Wash and trim the asparagus, then place in salted boiling water for 1 minute.

Serve on a flat dish with the dressing poured over and season with a good sprinkling of black pepper and salt.
