2 pounds red-skinned potatoes

2 Tbs minced fresh oregano
2 Tbs minced fresh parsley leaves
4 medium cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions
2 Tbs minced shallots
1 Tbs whole grain mustard
1 whole lemon cut in half
Place potatoes cut-side-down on one side of the grill over direct heat and cook, turning occasionally, until well-browned and crisp on both sides, 5 to 8 minutes total. Place the asparagus on the other half of the grill and grill on both sides about 5 minutes. Transfer potatoes to the bowl with the olive oil, mustard, and herb mixture as they finish cooking. When asparagus is cooked take off grill and cut them diagonally in two inch pieces and place in the bowl with the potatoes and dressing mixture. Combine and mix all the ingredients well.
Split lemon in half and place cut-side-down directly over heat. Grill until well browned, about 5 minutes. Squeeze grilled lemons into bowl with potatoes and asparagus. Toss and mix potatoes and asparagus thoroughly with lemon, olive oil, mustard and herbs.
