This looks beautiful on the plates. :)
Marinated Asparagus Salad
2 lbs fresh asparagus, cleaned and cooked to crisp tender. Plung into cold water to stop the cooking. Drain and place in a large ziplock bag.
Marinade: 1/3 cup each sugar & salad oil, 2/3 c white wine vinegar, salt & pepper. Chop 1/2 red bell pepper and 1/2 medium onion.
Mix sugar, oil and vinegar well together. Pour into ziplock bag over the asparagus. Add remaining vegetables. Place in a dish in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight. Turn bag occasionally.
To serve, lay large soft lettuce leaves on individual plates. Lift asparagus out of bag and place over the lettuce. Spoon some onion and pepper over the asparagus. For an added touch you can mix 3 TBSP of the marinade with 1/3 cup each mayo and sour cream and a dash of dill weed. Mix well and put a dollop on the top of each.
