Maple Mustard Glaze for Asparagus

I love asparagus.  I love how many nutrients are packed into each little spear.  We usually eat it the same way, so I went looking for something new.  A few days back I found this yummy drizzle to put over it.  It is simple, it is yummy, and it only has 3 ingredients that you stir together....PERFECT!
Maple Mustard Glaze for Asparagus
2 pounds asparagus
2 tablespoons real maple syrup (maple-flavored syrup or honey can be substituted)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons olive oil
Snap off tough ends of asparagus spears.  In 12-inch skiller or 4-quart Dutch oven, heat 1 inch water (salted if desired) to boiling.  Add asparagus.  Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium.  Cover and cook 4 to 5 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender; drain.  *Cooking the asparagus on the grill or indoor grill pan instead is yummy as well.
In a small bowl, mix maple syrup, mustard and oil.  Drizzle over asparagus and serve immediately.
