Grilled Asparagus with Yogurt Curry Sauce

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.

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

cooking spray




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!
