Notes

  • Dressing and potatoes will last in the fridge for up to one week.
  • If you don’t have these exact potatoes, no worries. Feel free to use any potatoes on hand. For example, you can use new potatoes or large red or yellow  potatoes instead. Cut them into 1 1/2 in chunks.
  • Make sure to buy thicker asparagus pieces. They seem to hold up better than thin.
  • If you only have frozen asparagus, feel free to take it through the same process and add to the pan frozen. it made need an additional 5 minutes or so of roasting.
  • To make this vegan or vegetarian simply remove the bacon and yogurt. For the dressing use a vegan mayo. 
  • Feel free to sub my homemade mayo or even sour cream for the Greek yogurt.
