Guilt Free Guacamole
Serve it as a dip with baked corn chips or raw vegetable sticks.
24 asparagus spears, trimmed and halved
1/2 cup salsa
1 tablespoon cilantro leaves
2 garlic cloves
4 scallions, thinly sliced
In a large nonstick skillet, combine the asparagus and 1/2 cup water; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simÂmer, covered, until the asparagus is tender-crisp, about 5 minutes; drain and run under cold water to cool.
