I've made this for camping and fancy dinner parties. It may have been orginally from Bon Appetit. I make it ahead so it has time combine all the flavors. I entice kids to eat this by letting them use their hands and they always come back for more.

  2. Roast shallots in a 350 oven for 20 minutes.
  3. Grill asparagus on the grill 5-7 minutes.
  4. When shallots have cooled mince them up.
