Grilled Asparagus Salad Recipe


Patio Pizzeria- Artisan Pizza and Flatbreads on the GrillWhile you’ve got the grill going, why not do the salad, too?

  • Yield: 4 Servings


  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed
  • Olive oil for brushing
  • Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the classic vinaigrette
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Parmesan cheese for shaving, as needed
  • Snipped fresh herbs, such as flat-leaf parsley, basil, chives, and lemon balm
How to Make It
  1. Prepare a medium-hot fire in your grill.
  2. Place the asparagus on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill the asparagus directly over the fire, perpendicular to the grill grates, for 3 to 4 minutes per side, turning often, or until crisp-tender. Arrange the asparagus on a platter.
  4. For the classic vinaigrette, place the olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, and garlic in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake to blend. Pour the vinaigrette over the asparagus. Use a vegetable peeler to shave the Parmesan, to your liking, over the asparagus and sprinkle with fresh herbs. Serve warm or at room temperature.
