Smoky Grilled Asparagus

READY IN: 36mins
Recipe by Chef Sarita in Aust

From Chef Nate Appleman (Food and Wine). I have made this delicious dish on the grill and on my cast iron skillet. It came out great with both.

Absolutely delicious! I did have to make a couple of subs. No mayo, so I used about 3 tablespoons of ranch dressing. I had no smoked cumin, so I used regular cumin and about 5 drops of liquid smoke. I tossed both asparagus and zucchini in the mixture and let sit for about 20 min, then grilled in a wok on my gas grill. I will definitely be making this again.
