This salad’s a little sweet, a little savory and very refreshing. Healthy asparagus boasts anti-inflammatory nutrients and vitamins A, B and C. It’s fabulous grilled; you’ll want to fix this again! —Jenne Delkus, Des Peres, Missouri

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the syrup, mustard, oil and dill; set aside.
  2. Place salmon skin side down on grill rack. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, drizzle asparagus with 1 tablespoon dressing; toss to coat. Arrange asparagus on a grilling grid; place on the grill rack with salmon. Spoon 1 tablespoon dressing over salmon.
  3. Grill salmon and asparagus, covered, for 4-6 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a fork and asparagus is crisp-tender, turning asparagus once.

"Our new favorite summer fish dish! We used Tuna steak very, very good! Next time I would double the dressing ingredients."
