Tender, smoky, and sweet, the best grilled asparagus is the perfect, healthy 15-minute side dish for any meal.
Side dishes are the connectors of the dinner table, the unifiers that bring the meal together. And because there’s usually more than one side dish to your dinner menu, it’s a good idea to keep the recipes easy.
So when I have a main dish that calls for a few ingredients and techniques to employ, I turn to my tried and true simple recipes.
This 15-minute, 2-ingredient grilled asparagus (plus salt and pepper) is definitely at the top of that list.
