Asparagus cooks up perfectly on the grill. We like to pair it with a homemade Dijon mustard sauce.

GRILLED ASPARAGUS WITH MUSTARD SAUCE
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt, divided
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
24 asparagus spears, trimmed
To prepare mustard sauce, use medium speed of an electric mixer and beat cream just until soft peaks form. Beat in vinegar, lemon juice, mustard and 1/4 tsp salt just until blended.
Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours. Combine oil, remaining 1/4 tsp salt and pepper in a heavy plastic bag. Add asparagus and squeeze bag to coat asparagus with oil mixture.
Remove asparagus from bag. Grill asparagus over medium heat on natural gas barbecue, turning occasionally, until tender, about 5 - 7 minutes. Serve with mustard sauce.
