Asparagus with Sorrel Dressing

The essence of lemon brings out the very best in fresh asparagus. Here, the lemony tartness comes from delicate sorrel greens, which are used to flavor the fresh-tasting yogurt-mayonnaise dressing. Look for sorrel especially in the spring.

Asparagus with Sorrel Dressing
cup plain low-fat yogurt
cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
cup finely snipped sorrel or fresh spinach
green onion, thinly sliced
teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning (optional)
tablespoons water
  1. For dressing, in a small bowl combine yogurt, mayonnaise, sorrel, green onion, and, if desired, lemon-pepper seasoning. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  2. Fold a 36x18-inch piece of heavy foil in half to make a double thickness of foil that measures 18x18 inches. Place asparagus in center of foil. Fold up edges of foil slightly; drizzle asparagus with the water. Bring up 2 opposite edges of foil; seal with a double fold. Fold remaining ends to completely enclose asparagus, leaving space for steam to build.
  3. Place asparagus on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals. Grill about 15 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender, turning once halfway through grilling. Serve the asparagus with dressing. Makes 4 servings.
