Let's take a moment to breathe a collective sigh of relief. Spring is here, and with it, our favorite harbingers: sunny daffodils, chirping birds, late sunsets, and of course -- asparagus.
With the sun finally emerging from that grey winter sky, the sight of this vegetable bundled at farmers' markets and poking its head out of our gardens' soil is enough to quell any doubt that spring has arrived at last. In our book, this is cause for celebration. So, open the windows, move your sweaters to the attic, and chill the rosé -- today, we're going all in on spring. Here are 11 asparagus recipes to get you started.
