  • 4 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries

Steps

  • 1
    Heat grill for indirect cooking as recommended by manufacturer. Break bottom inch off asparagus spears. Place 2 inches of water in large skillet; bring to a boil. Add asparagus; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until bright green. With pancake turner, remove asparagus from skillet; place in shallow pan of ice water. Remove asparagus from water; drain on paper towels.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To broil ham rolls, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once.
  • tip 2
    Smithfield ham is a dark, lean country-cured ham that's rich, savory and dry. Originally, pigs for Smithfield ham were fed only acorns, hickory nuts and peanuts. Now, they are grain-fed. Only hams cured and aged in Smithfield, Virginia can carry this name. The ham is dry-cured, seasoned, hickory-smoked and finally aged from 6 months to 2 years.
  • tip 3
    Prosciutto is the Italian word for ham. This luxurious ham is not smoked, but it is seasoned, salt-cured, air-dried and pressed until it is dense and full-flavored. Try prosciutto for these rolls, but watch it closely because prosciutto cooks more quickly than does Virginia ham.
