Grilled Asparagus and Onions with Lemon Dressing

Serves 6

Meyer lemons are in season and available. I picked up a big bag at Costco this week and I can’t wait to use them on everything from roasted chicken, this asparagus dish and for Shavuos when I make limoncello tiramisu.

1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon finely grated Meyer lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh Meyer lemon juice
1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
¼ cup olive oil, plus more
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
2 large bunches thick asparagus, trimmed
2 bunches scallions or leeks, halved if large

Prepare grill for medium-high. Whisk lemon zest, Meyer lemon zest, lemon juice, Meyer lemon juice, mustard, and ¼ cup oil in a medium bowl to combine; season dressing with salt and pepper (if you don’t have Meyer lemons, use regular lemons in their place)..

Place asparagus and spring onions on a rimmed baking sheet and lightly drizzle with oil. Season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Grill, turning once, until lightly charred and crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Serve drizzled with dressing.

Alternatively, do this in a 425°F oven until roasted, about 11 minutes
