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.
one bunch asparagus
1/2 c Wishbone Robusto Italian 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.
