This Asparagus recipe is a delicious treat for bacon lovers. Red onions, dijon mustard, white wine vinegar, salt and pepper combine to add a depth of flavor to fresh asparagus. 


  • 4 strips bacon, diced
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed, sliced in 2- to 3-inch lengths
  • 1 scant teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Steps to Make It

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

  2. If desired, remove some of the grease from the pan, leaving a tablespoon or two. Add onion and asparagus to the grease left in the pan and saute over medium-low heat until asparagus is just tender.

  3. Transfer the asparagus and onion to a serving bowl. Add the bacon and toss with the mustard and vinegar. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
