INGREDIENTS:

  • 1-1/2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 small tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
