In Season- Asparagus

This week I wanted to feature the beautiful and healthy veggie- asparagus!  A wonderful source of antioxidants, plus fiber and folate, asparagus is considered a disease-fighting veggie.  It's been available in our stores and farmer's markets for about a month, get some now before the supply dwindles and becomes more expensive.

Most of the time I fix asparagus on the grill; I trim the end, place them in a dish or a zipper bag, drizzle with balsamic vinegar, and sprinkle with a combo of salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Then when I've nearly finished grilling whatever protein we are having, I place the asparagus on and let them grill a couple minutes, gently roll them to get the other side grilled and that's all!

But, here is a fabulous gluten free and Paleo recipe for an asparagus salad.  So easy to fix some for dinner and save it for lunch the next day.  The recipe is written as a single serving, but it's so easy to increase to serve more.  But it's also very easy to have all the ingredients prepped to just fix yourself a single serving each time you want some.
