I call this a dip, because I literally sat there, dunking my asparagus in this lemony, garlicky, goodness. I mean, why not? We dip tons of other vegetables in dip when we make veggie platters and such, who ever thought it was a good idea to leave out asparagus? Not me. So I’m adding it. This is so light and refreshing, crunchy, citrusy, creamy, it has a sliiight hint of coconut, and is simply delicious.
