Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place unpeeled garlic cloves in small baking dish and drizzle with 1/2 teaspoon oil. Roast garlic until soft, about 20 minutes. Let cool slightly then peel and mince. Transfer to small bowl.

Whisk together garlic, vinegar, and dijon mustard. Slowly whisk in remaining 1/3 cup oil and add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

Prepare a grill for medium heat cooking. Thread asparagus on skewers (to make them easier to flip on the grill) and use a brush to oil both sides. Sprinkle with salt. Grill 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until asparagus is cooked through.

Arrange asparagus on a serving platter and drizzle vinaigrette. Serve warm or at room temperature.
