Grilled Asparagus

Well the weather has turned warm (for the most part!) and we have been cooking an increasing amount of dinners on the grill. I love grilling season! It makes cooking so easy and clean up even easier! One of our new found favorites this year is fresh asparagus on the grill. A friend from work gave us a large quantity of asparagus fresh from her garden and boy is it delicious when cooked on the grill! Here's how:

Grilled Asparagus

Fresh Asparagus (as much as desired)
1-2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Kosher or Sea Salt

1. Wash, dry and snap off ends of asparagus.
2. Sprinkle asparagus with Olive Oil and Salt.
3. Place horizontally on the top rack of the grill and cook 10 minutes or to desired tenderness.

Asparagus on the grill goes wonderfully with Hamburgers. Doodle loves a good hamburger and enjoys eating it sans bun with plenty of ketchup and mustard. She's also found a new love for Bratwurst! We've been feasting on these summer treats for quite a few weeks and the asparagus really rounds out the meal.

Of course, anything on the grill goes better with a tall, cool glass of lemonade. We fresh squeeze the lemons for a refreshing summer drink. Try some out today!
