  • 2 bunches asparagus, (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 1/3 cup chopped shallot
  • 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 3 tablespoons capers, rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Trim tough ends from asparagus; place on a baking sheet. Drizzle the asparagus with 1 tablespoon oil, salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; toss to coat. Spread in a single layer and roast, turning once halfway through, until the asparagus begins to soften and brown, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter.
  3. Meanwhile, place shallot, parsley and capers on a cutting board and chop together to make a coarse mixture. Transfer to a small bowl and combine with vinegar, the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Serve the asparagus topped with the dressing.
