What sauce would your recommend for grilled asparagus?

Made or store bought? Home made Hollondaise is too tough for me...
I would go with simply lemon juice and some S/P. So good. I also like to make "garlic chips": to serve with aspargus ( and broccoli, too). I slice up lots of garlic cloves, and fry til crispy on some OO and S/P.
I agree that you really don't need any sauce if they are grilled, but that being said, this Barefoot Contessa shallot sauce is excellent on asparagus as well as string beans (which the recipe calls for).
I have even made the sauce a day ahead and reheated it in the microwave.
I don't suppose you'd feel up to the challenge of making a homemade mayonnaise? All you need is a food processor (or a whisk and a strong arm).. it's super-easy!
The only thing that's better than plain grilled asparagus hot off the grill is cold grilled asparagus with a thin mayo (the real stuff, not Hellman's).
