Grilled Asparagus


I love almost any vegetable cooked on the grill, and if we are grilling meat or seafood I usually try and grill my vegetable sides as well. Asparagus is one vegetable that is delicious grilled lightly brown and just tender to the bite. This is a very easy recipe that can be put together and coked in minutes once your grill is already hot.

Buon Appetito!
