Asparagus Pastry Sticks with Lemon Dipping Sauce Recipe

servings: 20

prep time: 15 minutes

cook time: 12 – 15 minutes

total time: 30 minutes


Ingredients for the Dipping Sauce:

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • zest of ½ a lemon
  • juice of ½ lemon

Ingredients for Asparagus:

  • 20 medium to large asparagus stalks
  • 1 box (2 sheets) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • cooking spray


Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.

Step 2: In a small bowl whisk together mayonnaise, milk, lemon juice, lemon zest, and black pepper. Your dipping sauce is done! Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Step 3: Start to trim the asparagus. To do this, simply grasp one stalk of asparagus in the middle of the stem in one hand and grab the bottom of the stalk in the other hand, and give it a snap. The asparagus will naturally break where the tough stalk meets the tender part of the spear.
