Fresh Grilled Asparagus Spears

One of the quickest and simplest grilled vegetable recipes is to take a lb. of fresh asparagus(medium-sized) and snap off the tough trunks(the thick end) and discard. Sprinkle some olive oil and same salt onto the asparagus and wrap it in aluminum foil.

Place on the hot grill and cook for 10-15 minutes. Serves 4 happy eaters.
