Heat 1/2 tablespoon olive oil in a pan over medium heat, then saute the garlic, onions and mushrooms for 3-4 minutes until the onions start to turn transparent and the mushrooms start browning slightly. Remove from heat.

Boil 1/4 cup water in a large pan and blanch the asparagus for 1 minute. Then remove from the pan and place on a panini press (this is my lazy and quick way of getting grill marks without having to fire up the outdoor grill). Let the asparagus cook on the panini press for about 1 minute.

For the vinaigrette, wisk together all of the ingredients in a small mixing bowl.

To serve the dish, spoon the onion and mushrooms over the asparagus and then drizzle the vinaigrette over everything. Serve immediately and enjoy!
