Grilled Salmon and Asparagus

The difference between green and white asparagus is that white asparagus is grown underground. As the spears of white asparagus grow, they’re completely covered with a thick mound of dirt or black plastic so they’re never exposed to the sunlight. White asparagus has a more delicate flavor than green. White asparagus has slightly lower calories than green asparagus.
