Accessorize asparagus on a whim

Steamed, boiled, grilled or roasted, serve the spears with melted butter, a homemade tarragon mayonnaise, a mustardy vinaigrette, olive and anchovy relish, salsa verde, chimichurri or romesco.

Dress them with olive oil, lemon juice and salt, then shower them with Parmesan shavings.

Add smoked chicken for a more substantial asparagus first course or an elegant light lunch.

The salad was brushed with a piquant ginger-laced dressing and topped with crushed roasted peanuts, slivered chilies, cilantro and scallions.

Equally good is grilled chicken at room temperature or cold poached chicken.

2 garlic cloves, minced

Add ginger and garlic, then whisk in sesame oil and vegetable oil.

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil.

Garnish with basil, mint and cilantro leaves and serve immediately.
