Grilled Asparagus

**Click HERE to enter our giveaway**

When I was a little girl we used to meet my Aunt Denise and cousin Jackson and go pick asparagus. It's a simple memory. Nothing over the top happened, but now that my cousin is gone I cherish those sweet memories of our childhood. I never liked eating the stuff but I enjoyed picking it. A few years ago our friends the Tryon's cooked dinner for us and they made grilled asparagus. It was amazing. It took me back to fond childhood memories and promised many future memories enjoying this stuff!

Grilled Asparagus
1 lb. asparagus
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cut the rough bottom off the asparagus. Toss in Olive Oil until coated. Transfer to a tin foil "boat" and sprinkle with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Set "boat" directly onto grill. Cook approximately 10-15 minutes rotating frequently.



  1. I picked asparagus as a kid too. This recipe is simple and delicious.

  2. Dayna, this looks wonderful. I love asparagus in all its guises. I found your blog by chance but I'll be back often to see what you've been cookin' up. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  3. Funny, I just blogged about doing the same thing...great minds think alike! Always had to pick it as a little girl and hated to eat it. Now it is one of my favorite veggies especially roasted/grilled.
