Grilled Asparagus

My brother, John. makes this for most of our family parties.  He's really the grill meister in the family.  And, he usually doesn't use a recipe...  Fortnately, with a list of ingredients, I can usually come up with a reasonable recreation.  This recipe is one where I combined ideas - John's grilled asparagus and a friend's chicken marinade.  Rich and Juli had a big cookout for the folks who helped with the church rummage sale.  He grilled chicken that was some of the best I'd had.  I asked for the recipe and was amazed when he told me - Wishbone Robusto Italian Dressing.  Believe me, if you've never used the stuff as a marinade, you've really been missing out.  It makes amazing marinated mushrooms, chicken, flank steak.  Pretty much any meat or vegetable can be marinated in the dressing.

Blanch the asparagus in boiling water.  Remove and place in a bag or container with the dressing.  Marinate in the refrigerator overnight. Grill for about 5 minutes before serving.

Oh, if only I wasn't in an apartment without an outdoor grill.
