Ingredient Checklist


For dressing:
  • In jar with screw-top lid, combine the 1/4 cup oil, lemon peel and juice, the 1/2 teaspoon salt and the 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Cover and shake well; set aside.

  • Clean and trim asparagus; coat lightly with the 2 tablespoons oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Set aside. Meanwhile, clean arugula or spinach and remove excess stems; dry. Set aside.

  • For a charcoal grill, grill asparagus crosswise on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 4 to 6 minutes or until crisp-tender, turning spears occasionally. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place asparagus crosswise on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)

  • While asparagus is warm, toss with arugula and dressing (this will wilt the arugula). Divide among 4 dinner plates and top with Parmesan curls. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
