TASTE.44 | SUMMER LOVIN'

Let's face it.  Cooking in the summer is not as enjoyable as it is in the winter.  Anything that can be grilled is the dinner of choice in my book.  This is why I'm over the moon with Grilled Asparagus. It goes with everything.  Grilled fish, grilled steak or a grilled vegetable medley.  Not only a healthy choice but one that can be enjoyed in an outdoor setting while the sun is setting.  This recipe is from one of my favorite food blogs, The Kitchy Kitchen, and since discovered, we've been making it from then on. If you love asparagus with a little spice as much as we do, you are going to be quite a fan of this sweet and simple recipe.  Enjoy!
