Roast Beef/Turkey & Asparagus Appetizer

This is very simple to put together (especially since I usually have deli thinly-sliced roast beef and/or turkey on hand), & tasty too. No need for exact measurements, as you can make as few, or as many as you like.

Rinse & trim fresh asparagus (snap off the woody ends). Steam the asparagus & plunge into an ice water bath. Pat asparagus dry. Next, spread each roast beef and/or turkey slice w/ a thin layer of a combo of about one part prepared horseradish to two parts sour cream or onion & chive cream cheese. (For the turkey, you can spread a thin layer of Dijon mustard instead.) Place one or two asparagus over the top & roll up. Let the asparagus tip(s) peek out of the top. If you want to get fancy, slice green onions in half lengthwise, & wrap around the bundles. Quick & simple. Enjoy.

Try cooking your asparagas in the micro. I rinse mine,take the bands off and put it back in the bag from the produce section. Micro for 2-3 minutes and you will have that snappy consistancy you want without any dirty dishes.

You appy sounds good I just thought I would share my shortcut.

Time got away from me. Vegetables do turn out nicely when cooked in the microwave - especially corn. Thanks for the reminder. Hope you give it a try. Very simple & tasty.

Is that produce bag microwave safe? It could be giving off toxins if it isn't.
