This is elegant and delicious. If you can't find white asparagus you can use green, then you don't have to peel the stems. The flavor of the orange vinagrette complements the toasted nuts very well.
1. Peel the asparagus stalks, cut off the ends and steam about 6 minutes or until tender. Allow to cool in an ice bath.
2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat and add the chopped nuts. Toast for a few minutes until golden brown and fragrant.
3. Divide the salad between four plates. Combine the orange juice and wine vinegar in a bowl and drizzle in the olive oil, whisking, until combined. Add sugar, salt and pepper to taste.
4. Cut the asparagus stalks in half and arrange on the salad. Pour dressing onto each plate. Sprinkle with toasted nuts.
