Grilled Asparagus Salad

Last updated: June 12, 2023

Asparagus is one of the first vegetables to poke its head up in our spring vegetable gardens. This tall, slender vegetable packs a nutritional punch. It’s fiber-rich, full of antioxidants, including vitamin C, and is rich in vitamin A, folate and vitamin K. This versatile recipe can be part of your heart-healthy eating habits. No spinach available in your kitchen? Switch it out for your favorite greens and add other vegetables such as radishes, tomatoes or cucumbers to add more color and crunch to this salad.
