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!
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.
