  • 1 pound asparagus , ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt, divided
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese (for dairy-free, omit and use roasted pine nuts instead)


  • Preheat the grill to high heat. Place asparagus in a bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil and ½ teaspoon salt. Place asparagus cross-wise across grill grates (or place on a vegetable grilling tray) and grill over high heat for 3-5 minutes or to desired tenderness. Transfer to a cutting board and slice diagonally, into 2- to 3-inch long pieces. Place sliced asparagus into a serving bowl.

    I’ve done this before with green beans, and awesome as usual. A great way to use veggies that need to be used up….it also freezes well.
