Griled Asparagus with Wasabi-Soy Dipping Sauce

 

Fresh asparagus is drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with a little salt, and grilled until tender. If you don’t want to heat up an outdoor grill, using a grill pan is quick and easy and works just as well. Grilling asparagus really heightens its flavors and I love the way it tastes with a little char on the outside.

The sweet and savory Wasabi-Soy Dipping Sauce is addictive. This Asian-Flavored dip can be made a day in advance for easy last minute prep. It is made from just 4 ingredients: reduced-fat mayonnaise, soy sauce, SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend, and wasabi paste.

  2. I’ve been eating bunch after bunch of grilled asparagus so why haven’t I thought to make a nice dipping sauce like this? I love the sound of the wasabi-soy! Pinned.

  3. Asparagus is one of my favorites especially when it’s grilled! This looks incredible, Chrstin! Love the wasabi soy dipping sauce!

  4. Your grilled asparagus looks so delicious. I never thought to make a wasabi soy dipping sauce to go with it. I will have to see is the splenda brown sugar has come to Hong Kong yet as this would be a great addition to so many needed recipes.
