We often just eat the asparagus plain, but when I want to dress it up a bit
I use the following yogurt topping (for a stronger orange flavor and a
richer texture, use orange juice concentrate instead of orange juice):

This sauce is wonderful! Really dresses up the asparagus and makes you feel
like you're eating something sinful. Changed original recipe to use nonfat
yogurt and mayonnaise.
You can begin the sauce even after you start cooking the asparagus!
This was the highlight of our Easter meal this year! No one could resist
this light, creamy sauce. It made the entire plate look elegant. My
thanks go to Taste of Home field editor Cathee Bethel of Lebanon, Oregon,
for recommending it.
