Wrapped Asparagus Recipe @pinch

This wrapped asparagus is an unusual and delicious appetizer. Slightly cooked and crisp asparagus is wrapped in salty prosciutto. It adds a savory and smoky component to the dish. Then, it's sprinkled with creamy blue cheese to add a touch of tang. The sweet and tangy balsamic dressing is a nice addition and cuts through the richness of the appetizer and adds a burst of flavor that lingers on your palate. The homemade dressing would work on other vegetables too. This is an easy appetizer that looks and tastes fabulous. I have made it without the prosciutto as well. Excellent both ways. You can use low-fat blue cheese to cut out some calories. Enjoy!
