Grilled Asparagus with Gribiche Sauce recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 10 minutes

A tangy, tart, savoury and slightly sweet sauce dresses up regular asparagus in this simple recipe. Perfect with cold cuts of meat on a warm summers day.


  • 500g asparagus
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 boiled eggs
  • 4 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp. yoghurt (natural, flavour free)
  • 3-4 cornichons (optional)
  • 1-2 tbsp. freshly chopped chives
  • Sal and pepper


  1. Finely dice the eggs and shallot. Dice the cornichons if using. Mix together the mayo, extra-virgin olive oil, shallot, vinegar, yoghurt, cornichons, chives, salt and pepper. Add a little extra yoghurt or vinegar if the sauce is too thick.

  2. Cook the asparagus by tossing in 1 tbsp. oil and salt and pepper. Lay in a preheated griddle pan and cook for 5-8 minutes or until lightly charred and tender. Serve with the sauce spooned over.

A little parsley would taste wonderful in this sauce, as would some lemon zest. Recipe serves 4.
