When we first moved to the Nashville area it was such a fast move that we ended up renting out our house in Georgia and getting an apartment. Three years later, we are still in said apartment. I'm
But one of the really crappy things about living in an apartment is that we don't get to grill. We miss grilling like crazy, so every time we go to my Mom's or to the in-laws', we always try to grill out. A couple of weeks ago we grilled some asparagus and it was great. It's so simple, just marinate the asparagus in Greek dressing and then grill. We like to use Ken's Steakhouse Greek Dressing, but I'm sure you can use any Greek or Italian dressing that you like.
Here is what we do for...
1 bottle of Greek dressing
Ground black pepper
Wash and trim asparagus. Put in Ziploc bag and sprinkle with ground black pepper. Then pour in enough dressing to cover the asparagus completely (that usually ends up being about 1/2 a bottle for us). Seal the Ziploc bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Once asparagus is marinated, place them on a hot grill so that they will not fall between the grates. Grill on high for about 5 minutes, turning them every now and then so they cook evenly. We like them al dente, so we don't go over 5 minutes.
