- Heat the olive oil and butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, and saute for a few minutes to release the flavor into the oil. Add the water chestnuts, asparagus, and vinegar; cook and stir for about 10 minutes, until the asparagus is cooked but still crunchy.

Worth a try, even for non-asparagus lovers. (It does look very nice!) Addendum: try adding a red pepper sliced lengthways for color. I think it really adds to the look, and it's a good texture bridge between the water chestnuts and the asparagus. I added the red pepper in at the same time as the asparagus and water chestnuts."
