*To trim asparagus, snap off the tough bottoms. For larger spears, peeling might be necessary. Using a vegetable peeler, starting about halfway down the trimmed spear, peel tough outer skin.
- In a blender or food processor, combine 1/2 cup of the roasted red pepper strips with the vinegar, mustard, and tarragon; process or blend until smooth. Taste and add salt and pepper, as needed.
- Put asparagus in a deep skillet or asparagus cooker. Cover with water and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until just tender.
- Drain, let cool, and pat with paper towels to dry as much as possible.
- Arrange asparagus on a serving platter, top with the remaining roasted red pepper strips, and spoon dressing over tall.
