Tar­ragon As­para­gus

I grow pur­ple as­para­gus, so I’m al­ways look­ing for new ways to pre­pare it. Re­cently, my hus­band and I dis­cov­ered how won­der­ful any color of as­para­gus tastes when it’s grilled. SUE GRONHOLZ BEAVER DAM, WIS­CON­SIN

2 pounds fresh as­para­gus, trimmed 2 ta­ble­spoons olive oil 1 tea­spoon salt
