Tyler Kord, the co-founder of New York City’s No. 7 Sub shops, smokes the French dressing for his asparagus sandwiches over wood chips. This simplified version gets its smokiness from chipotles and smoked salt.

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a blender, combine the ketchup with the mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, garlic and chipotle. Puree until smooth. Season the French dressing with salt.

Step 2    

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the asparagus until bright green, about 2 minutes. Drain the asparagus and spread them out on a large baking sheet to cool.

Step 3    

Preheat a large grill pan. Drizzle the asparagus with olive oil and season with salt. Grill over moderately high heat, turning, until tender and lightly charred, about 3 minutes.

Step 4    

Spread the cut sides of each roll with 3 tablespoons of the smoky French dressing. Arrange the grilled asparagus on the subs and top with the raisins, scallions and crumbled feta. Close the sandwiches and serve.
