Easter tables must have Grilled Marinated Asparagus

The true sign of spring in the food world is the abundance of many fresh vegetables. That's why you have to try this marinated asparagus recipe!

Asparagus is one of the quintessential spring vegetables.It appears earlier, but it peaks in May, so this favorite American vegetable (broccoli came in #2) is showcased this time of year.

This cherished culinary pleasure is so flavorful that you’ll find it in all kinds of dishes. When purchasing asparagus, examine the tips for signs of freshness as that's the portion most likely to break or spoil.

Look for tightly closed tip and stalks that aren't too dry. The young asparagus have purple tips and green stems and grow thicker as they ripen.

You can grill this recipe for marinated asparagus in advance and serve the dish cold.

But be sure to shock the asparagus in ice cold water to stop it from overcooking and to keep the flavor and gorgeous green color.

The roasted red pepper adds a touch of heat, which you’ll really like even if you’re not into spicy food.

You can also serve it as a cold marinated asparagus appetizer at a party with slices of melon, prosciutto, and cheese. Yum!
