Active Time: 15 minutes
Full Time: 1½ hrs
Pre-heat oven to 400 F. Toss whole beets with Drizzle, salt, and pepper. Cover with tin foil and roast for an hour or until fork-tender. Once cooked, allow to cool before peeling off the skin and cut into 1” cubes.
While the beets are cooking, prepare the asparagus and dressing.
To blanch asparagus, bring a pot of water to a boil. Prepare an ice bath in a bowl large enough to cover the bunch of asparagus. Boil the asparagus for 3 minutes, then immediately remove with tongs and submerge into the ice bath for 1 minute. Drain water and pat dry. Cut into 1-2” pieces.
For the dressing, add lemon zest, juice, dijon mustard, honey, Sizzle, salt and pepper into a small bowl. Whisk to combine. Add in diced shallot.
