A trick my grandmother, who taught me this exquisite recipe is to take a very thin slice of a quality Virginia Ham and roll it around Chilled and lemon drizzled Asparagus spears to serve with the fruit and quiche for a full evening meal.

Wonderful recipe to serve at bridge or other card parties. It is great for any gathering of ladies, such at Beta Sigma Phi or a Civic or Religious Group for a satisfying and differnt dish.

In the spring, I like this especially with the new season's fresh strawberries!
