Herbed Raw Asparagus

12-16 fresh asparagus spears
2/13 cup apple cider vinegar
3 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil
4 tsp raw agave nectar
1 tsp capers, mased slightly with fingers
1 large or 2 small cloves fresh garlic, minced
1 tsp resh chopped rosemary
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp marjoram
1/2 tsp minced dried onion
1/8 tsp coarse black pepper
1/4 tsp sea salt

Mix the marinade ingredients together well (everything except asparagus spears).  Let sit in a glass jar overnight in the refrigerator.  Then place the asparagus spears in a large bowl.  Pour marinade over the spears and very gently toss them in the liquid being careful not to damage the tender tops.  Let them marinate for 4-6 hours tossing them every hour or so.  Arrange on a serving platter and garnish or in a casserole dish.  Serve with tongs.  Delicious!!!
