Roasted Asparagus with Caper Dressing

From EatingWell:  June/July 2005, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

Roasting mellows the grassy flavor of asparagus; the caper dressing provides a salty counterpoint. Serve with grilled fish or meat.

4 servings | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Trim tough ends from asparagus; place on a baking sheet. Drizzle the asparagus with 1 tablespoon oil, salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; toss to coat. Spread in a single layer and roast, turning once halfway through, until the asparagus begins to soften and brown, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter.
  3. Meanwhile, place shallot, parsley and capers on a cutting board and chop together to make a coarse mixture. Transfer to a small bowl and combine with vinegar, the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Serve the asparagus topped with the dressing.
