Oh, how I love beautiful side dishes to go with my main meal. I also love it when the vegetable is one of the best parts of the meal! Our little family LOVES grilled asparagus. The grill really helps to bring out the beautiful, unique flavor of the asparagus making it taste so incredibly fresh with LOADS of flavor. We’ve been having this quite regularly around my house. It’s tasty, but also SUPER easy and SUPER fast! We’re talking a total of 6-8 minutes from start to finish. Usually I just toss it on the grill while our meat is cooking and it’s all ready at the same time. It’s FABULOUS!

1 pound fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
fresh lemon wedges
Preheat grill for high heat.
Lightly coat the asparagus spears with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste (I usually do this on a plate or in a shallow pan and I toss the spears all around to ensure they get evenly coated).
Place spears on hot grill and grill over high heat for about 2 to 3 minutes, rotate, and then grill for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, or to your desired tenderness. Just before serving, squeeze fresh lemon wedges over asparagus.
