What You'll Need

  • 4 strips bacon, diced
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed, sliced in 2- to 3-inch lengths

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

How to Make It

  1. Cook bacon until crisp; remove to paper towels to drain.
