Asparagus with Lemon Dill Dipping Sauce

Well, I was going to take a picture of this today, as I'd made it to take to work. Except hubby ate it. All of it. LOL. He seriously is the world's worst late night snacker. I didn't say anything to him about not eating it because a) I've never seen him eat more veggies than necessary, and b) he doesn't like dill. I guess late night snack desperation took over :)

Anyway, this is a snack I like to make to take to work. You can also increase the amounts you make and serve as a healthy snack at a party.

1/2lb. fresh asparagus, ends removed
1T light mayonnaise
1/4 cup light sour cream
1t dijon mustard (I like to use Horseradish Dijon for a little extra kick)
1T lemon juice
1t lemon peel, finely grated
1/4t kosher salt
1/4t garlic powder
1/4t pepper
1/4t dried dill

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Drop asparagus in and cook about 2 minutes, until crisp tender. Drain and rinse in cold water to stop cooking.

Meanwhile, mix remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Cover, and chill both the dip and the asparagus until serving. Hide from hubby.
