When I was in Florida, Beth and I ordered an appetizer that I LOVED at the Golden Lion along the beach: Grilled Asparagus with Dijon Dipping Sauce. It was SUCH a tasty treat and, frankly, an awesome guilt-free appetizer. We actually ordered it twice!
Ever since I ate it, I’ve been wanting to recreate it here at home. I mean, what a great way to get your veggies in… and I had the perfect idea for what sauce I wanted to pair it with.
[pinterest]This easy to make curry dip is big on flavor, and the perfect sauce for grilled meats and veggies. I had it for the first time at my friends Deb and Matt’s house, and have been obsessed with it ever since! I HIGHLY recommend you trying it with steak and chicken. It would also be ridiculously delicious with the kabob recipe I shared last month.
In the meantime, try it with this yummy grilled asparagus and get ready to put it on everything in your house.
Grilled Asparagus with Yogurt-Curry Sauce
1/2 cup plain lowfat yogurt (or Greek, if you prefer)
2 Tbsp. light mayonnaise
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 – 2 tsp. curry powder (sweet or hot, depending on preference)
1/8 tsp. salt
Asparagus spears, trimmed
1. Whisk first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate until time to serve.
2. Trim your asparagus, and spray it lightly with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
3. Grill the veggies on a grill or grill pan (I’m out of propane!) until the spears are tender and lightly browned.
4. Serve your asparagus with a side of curry dip. Enjoy!
