Asparagus is my husband’s favorite vegetable and I make it at any chance that I get. I usually stick to the same ole’, same ole’ way of making it either boiled or baked, so I conjured up this recipe and figured grilling them would make it even more appetizing. With all of the good we indulged in on New Year’s Eve we figured we had to through something green and healthy into the mix so this was the perfect addition to our NYE 2015 spread. Feel free to get wild and top these salted grilled asparagus with nuts, cheese, or grated lemon to spice things up!

    What a cool idea! I must say, I’m glad you didn’t make the cones – I was feeling singularly unaccomplished!
