Grilled Asparagus


Servings: 4


  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1/4 pound baby arugula
  • 1/4 cup picked tarragon leaves
  • 2 scallions
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 anchovy fillet, minced
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts, chopped

For the vinaigrette
  1. Finely chop the white portion of the scallions and put them in a bowl with the mustard, anchovy and sherry vinegar. Slowly whisk in the 1/2 cup of olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
For the asparagus
  1. Snap the bottom portion of the stems off of the asparagus. Drizzle with the remaining two tablespoons of olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. On a hot grill, cook the asparagus for three to five minutes, or until lightly charred and just tender.
