Ingredients Directions
  1. For fresh asparagus, snap off and discard the woody bases of asparagus. If desired, use a vegetable peeler to scrape off scales.
  2. Cook, covered, in a small amount of boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. (Cook frozen asparagus according to package directions.) Drain.
  3. Meanwhile, for vinaigrette, in a small saucepan combine the cornstarch, garlic powder, and ginger. Stir in apricot nectar.
  4. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more.
  5. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in vinegar. Pour over cooked asparagus; toss gently to coat.
