asparagus with Sherry Vinagrette
This is a richly flavored, asparagus recipe drizzled with a sherry vinegar dressing and would be a great choice for a spring dinner party.




  • 2 pounds asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • ¼ cup chopped onions
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar
  • 1/3 cup sherry vinegar
  • Salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup grated manchego cheese


  1. Cook asparagus in a pot of boiling salted water until crisp tender, about 5 minutes. Drain in a colander.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook, stirring until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the sherry vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper and stir about 5 minutes.
  3. To serve, drizzle the asparagus with the vinegar dressing and top with grated manchego cheese.

yay for another great asparagus recipe! the only way I knew how to eat asparagus was dipped in red pepper vinegar sauce (korean) and wrapped in nori!

Great combination! Manchego is such a great flavorful cheese.

The manchego cheese gives the asparagus an unique flavor.

I should have thought about the combo of asparagus and manchego cheese. Seems like a natural and I will certainly give this a try. I think it might accompany well with this tapa recipe for Serrano Ham Croquettes w/ manchego cheese
