With summer underway, I’m looking forward to some delicious food hot off the grill. Herbs can spice up any meal, but some work particularly well with grilled food. Here are the best herbs for your grilling recipes.

Lemon Thyme

This tangy herb goes well with chicken or pork, but tastes especially delicious with vegetables. Try this recipe for delicious Lemony Asparagus.

• Heavy-duty aluminum foil
• Nonstick cooking spray
• 1 pound asparagus, ends snipped
• 2 teaspoons lemon thyme
• 2 teaspoons lemon basil, chopped
• 2 tablespoons butter

1. Spray two sheets of foil with cooking spray. Add half the asparagus to each sheet. Blend herbs and divide between asparagus packets. Add 1 tablespoon butter to each packet.

2. Fold foil over, lengthwise, pressing both sides together and fold over. Fold and seal each end. Repeat with second packet.
