You have to try this “Wok-Fried Asparagus with Walnuts.” It will go great with your summer meals. It takes asparagus to a whole new level! We all need to eat more GREEN with our meals. By the time your chicken dish on the BBQ is done, so will your veggie, and believe me that is half the battle! I would like to thank David Tanis from New York Times for this great asparagus side dish.
