Asparagus with Sherry Shallot Vinaigrette by Devin Alexander

My friend Cristina makes it very clear that she does not eat low-fat food. When she first met me, she was one of those people who adamantly said that there is no way healthy food tastes good. Though she’s beautiful and in great shape, she always cooks with tons of olive oil and lots of butter.

One night she was having a dinner party, and I brought this dish. She went insane over it. She kept saying, “There’s no way this dressing is lower-fat.” She’s since eaten this dish over and over and even served it to her guests.

These days she does concede that certain healthy dishes taste even better than the traditional varieties. But when anyone who is not me says they made something healthy, she still has no desire to try it. So many people feel this way; I hope this book can change the way they think about healthy food.
