How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place spears and washed tomatoes in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan.
  • Drizzle olive oil and lemon juice over the spears and the tomatoes, rolling them back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil.
  • Sprinkle evenly with salt.
  • Grind some fresh pepper generously over all.
  • (can toss a few WHOLE peeled garlic cloves in the mix just for flavor, you will remove them before dressing warm veggies with the dressing)
  • Roast for about 12 to 14 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork and the tomatoes begin to wrinkle.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle with lemon zest.
  • Remove and use garlic on a piece of toast for a snack for the cook.
  • Whisk the orange (tangerine or pink grapefruit juice) with the honey and mustard, finally add oil and whisk.
  • Dress warm asparagus and tomatoes.
  • Serve warm or let sit at room temperature.
