Directions

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus, (about 1 pound), trimmed
  • 2 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2-3 dashes Asian red chile sauce, such as sriracha (optional)
  • 1 bunch radishes, trimmed and cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped scallion

Cooking Instruction

Step 1

Fill a medium bowl with ice water and place by the stove. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket.

Step 2

Thinly slice asparagus stalks on the diagonal, leaving the tips whole. Place in the steamer basket and steam until tender-crisp, about 1 minute. Transfer the asparagus to the ice water. Drain.

Step 3

Combine vinegar, soy sauce, canola oil, sesame oil, ginger and chile sauce (if using) in a large bowl. Add the asparagus, radishes and scallion; toss to combine. Serve warm or room temperature.
