Grilled Asparagus Recipe

Hello Friends! I hope that you are doing well and having a good week! With summer officially starting soon, for us, that means more barbecues!

Today’s recipe is an easy one when you are looking for a healthy side dish recipe made with fresh vegetables. I love to check when the asparagus is on sale and use it as a side dish. Farmer’s markets often have asparagus available too. It is a perfect dish because it only takes a few ingredients and is ready in about 15 minutes. 


This recipe is easy and tasty! Plus the asparagus is full of vitamins too! 

Grilled-Asparagus Ingredients

List of main ingredients:

Asparagus – You want fresh asparagus for this recipe. Look for stalks with firm ends that are not dark green or black.

Lemon – A slice of lemon adds a little bit of tanginess and zest to asparagus.

Salt – I prefer Kosher salt, but regular table salt works just fine.

You can make these on the grill or use a grill mat.

Cassidy loves to grill asparagus! This looks so fresh. Sometimes he will put some sort of cheese on it, and once even made bacon wrapped asparagus.
