  • 1 lb medium fresh asparagus
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup each coarsely chopped red and green seedless California grapes
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper


Remove thick, woody part of asparagus spears. Bring water and salt to boil. Add asparagus and cook about 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp-tender and still bright green.

While asparagus is cooking, heat olive oil in a skillet and sauté onion and garlic. Add grapes, vinegar, mustard and pepper; heat thoroughly.

Spoon half of grape mixture onto serving platter, top with cooked asparagus and spoon remaining grape mixture over asparagus.


The fresh grape relish also works well with grilled asparagus.


Serve with broiled fish or chicken breast.
