1 pound fresh asparagus, preferably thin spears

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Wash asparagus and trim the ends. If stems are tough, remove the outer layer with a vegetable peeler.

Whisk in olive oil until mixture is blended. Pour over cooked asparagus. Serve warm.
