A Simple Side - Grilled Asparagus

I decided tonight that asparagus is my favorite vegetable. (Well, that and avocado.) And grilled asparagus makes it that much better. It's an oh-so-good, delightfully easy, must-try side dish. (If all those adjectives didn't convince you, I don't know what would!)


Toss asparagus with a generous drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper, and let marinate in fridge for about half an hour. Place asparagus on grill on medium heat until the spears are fork tender and slightly charred.

(The above picture is the pre-grilled asparagus. I meant to take a pic after we grilled it, but we devoured it too quickly! Maybe later this week... I'm always up for an excuse to make it again!)
