Easy Grilled Asparagus
Avoid heating up your oven or messing up a lot of dishes and use your outdoor grill to cook your entire meal. Since you are going to fire up the grill for a platter of burgers or grilled chicken, you may as well plan to grill your vegetables, as well. Everyone loves to put corn on the cob, peppers, and onions over the coals, but step up your grilling game and try this easy recipe for grilled asparagus. For best results, choose medium-sized (or jumbo when in season) asparagus - they will hold up much better on the grill than the average pencil thin spears. Start by cooking a few strips of bacon, because we can all agree that everything is better with bacon, right? You will use some of the reserved bacon drippings in the tasty vinaigrette. If you are grilling other items, save the asparagus for last, as they only take 2 to 5 minutes, depending on the size of the spears.
