2 lb fresh asparagus, washed well and cu; t into 1 pieces
1 red pepper, seeded and cut into 1/4; x 1 pieces
1 red onion, chopped
1/2 cup raspberry vinegar
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar or honey
1 teaspoon parsley
Steam the asparagus pieces for 2 minutes. Plunge into cold water to stop cooking. Drain.
Put asparagus, red pepper and onion into a plastic bowl (with cover). Blend vinegar, water, sugar (honey) and parsley in a separate bowl and then pour over vegetables. Adjust seasonings if desired (may want to add more sweetness). Stir, cover and refrigerate for at least 24 hours. Stir every so often.
Serve cold as a side salad.
Hint: make sure you only use the tender part of the asparagus. My mom taught me that you hold the tip and base of the asparagus in separate hands and then bend it until it breaks. Only use the tip end and use the base end for soup or compost it.
