Big Mama's Roasted Asparagus

Imagine a bed of tender, roasted asparagus, glistening with our vinaigrette and sprinkled with crunchy almonds. The asparagus is perfectly cooked, with a slight char on the outside and a soft, juicy center. The whole dish is finished with a drizzle of Big Mama's Calamondin Vinaigrette, which adds a bright, citrusy flavor.
