      Wash the asparagus thoroughly and trim off the tough bottoms of the stalks: do not discard these, as you can use them for soup together with the asparagus cooking water. An asparagus steamer gives the best results, but failing that, cook them lying flat in boiling water in a deep, wide frying pan – or even a wok. They are done when you can easily pierce the fleshiest part of the stems with a knife. Drain – saving the water – and set aside to cool. To make the dressing, combine the oil, lemon juice, and pepper in a jug.
