Asparagus

Inspired by this Lemon Herb Mediterranean Chicken Salad, this new asparagus recipe will be a hit at your spring dinner or lunch table! Serve it with a main OR as a snack! Either way, you’ll be licking your plates clean thanks to the incredible Lemon Garlic and Herb dressing that they are cooked in AND drizzled with afterwards!

Tips to cook asparagus!

  • Snap off the woody dry ends of the asparagus. A quicker way when cooking a large bunch like this is to snap the end off one first, then line them all up on your chopping board and slice through the rest at the same length.
  • Drizzle with the incredible lemon/herb/garlic dressing.
  • Roast OR pan fry! Either method works great and tastes amazing!
