1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

3. Trim onions to same length as asparagus spears. Combine asparagus and onions in medium bowl. Add remaining 1 tbsp. oil and toss to coat. Place vegetables on grill and cook, turning often, about 6 minutes for onions and about 4 minutes for asparagus, until lightly browned, crisp and tender.
