roasted asparagus with tarragon vinaigrette

This is a delicious dish that both tastes and looks elegant yet is so very simple to put together!  If you are grilling, you can grill the asparagus instead of roasting and it tastes equally delicious!

We usually double the vinaigrette and use it as salad dressing as well!  Fresh tarragon is best but dried works if you don’t have fresh!  Enjoy!
