Asparagus with Bits of Bacon


This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe was simple and delicious.

Toss some oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice over cooked asparagus.
Season with salt and pepper.
Top with bits of bacon and finely diced onion.

What’s there not to like!?!

And it was so easy to prepare and serve alongside grilled salmon, we had time to experiment and play with pink streaks…

What can I say…


Can’t wait to see what the rest of the French Fridays with Dorie group thought of this dish and how they served it!

  1. Sanya – looks lovely!
    My youngest has had streaks in every color of the rainbow – and has had her full head in every color imaginable as well. It’s been so many years since I have seen her natural blonde color, it’s not even funny. I was happy when she finally settled on a nice brown. Whew.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Pink streaks are perfect for Easter or for Spring. My daughter just did purple…so fun. Your asparagus is beautifully presented.

  3. How fun! In college, a friend of mine bleached a short section underneath her hair so she could make it almost a neon pink and it looked really cool since you could only see it if her hair flipped around in the wind and stuff or if she put her hair up, so you didnt notice it most of the time…. more creative than I would ever have been! 🙂
    Your asparagus is so nicely arranged also!

  4. Delicious asparagus and cute streaks!

  5. Ok, I have black hair, but heading to sunny Palm Springs, so my hair dresser convinced me to get highlights…ugh. I did it but not quite sure yet.

    I loved the asparagus too, so easy and yummy!

  6. Lovely photos – the asparagus and the hair ! Very fun. With two sons I have bypassed most of the hair coloring issues but we spend many a day discussing length…..luckily I get no push back when it comes to offering up the “Dorie dishes”. Everyone loved this one and my 15 year old son declared this to be his favorite Dorie food yet. Wow.

  7. Agreed. This was so simple and delicious and yours looks so pretty. I hope you have a great Easter!

  8. Very nicely displayed! Your daughter is so pretty!

  9. Beautifully done! I love how vibrant your asparagus looks! And cute streaks…perfect for Easter 🙂

  10. You are so right, what’s not to like about this dish? Love your daughters pink streaks. Happy Easter.

  11. Loved the streaks. My kids (8 and 10) went with blue! Since they are grandchildren, not children, I oouuuu’ed and ah’ed. Fun. Yes, the dish was simple and fun and delcious. On to sardines. Are you game?

  12. Lovely asparagus and pink streaks!!! How fun for the girls. Happy belated Easter, and anxious to see how your family likes the sardines.
