  • medium asparagus spears (trimmed and patted very dry)
  • walnuts (chopped)
    1 tbsp
  • light balsamic vinaigrette
    2 tsp
  • Pepper, to taste (coarsely ground preferred)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lightly spray with cooking spray.

  2. Arrange the asparagus in a single layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle the walnuts around the asparagus. Lightly spray the asparagus with cooking spray. Roll back and forth to coat.

  3. Roast for 5 minutes. Using tongs, turn the asparagus over gently. Roast for 4 minutes, or until the walnuts begin to brown. Transfer to a plate.

  4. Spoon the vinaigrette over the asparagus and walnuts. Roll back and forth to coat. Sprinkle with the pepper. Let stand for 10 minutes so the flavors blend.

  5. Cook’s Tip: Be sure to dry the asparagus thoroughly before cooking or it will not brown properly.
