Prosciutto wrapped asparagus is one of my favorite appetizers so I thought I’d mix it up a bit and serve it with a zesty dipping sauce.
It really doesn’t get much easier than this. Season the asparagus, wrap it up, pop it under the broiler and you have a delicious appetizer in under 20 minutes! The lemon dill sauce is one of my favorite Paula Dean recipes and tastes AMAZING with her crab cakes!
