I love fried pickles and other fried things that can be dipped in dressing.
OK. I love fried food.
I’ve had fried green beans and fried pickles but never fried asparagus before. I think it might be one of my favorites, right up there with fried pickles. The asparagus stay crispy with they have a crispy breading on the outside too. I made a batch of these, photographed them and had two before having my husband try them. He then ate the entire batch! He loved them with the Greek yogurt ranch dressing. I will absolutely be making these again!!!
