- Heat an oiled, ridged frying pan, until very hot. Place the wrapped asparagus in the pan. Pan-fry on all sides, until the bacon is cooked.
- To make the dressing, crumble the cheese into a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk to make a smooth dressing. Drizzle over the asparagus and serve.
