  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind

How to Make It

  1. Snap off and discard tough ends of asparagus.

  2. Combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish or large zip-top plastic bag; add asparagus, turning to coat.

  3. Remove asparagus from oil mixture.

  4. Grill asparagus, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 2 to 4 minutes or until tender, turning once. Remove asparagus, and sprinkle evenly with grated lemon rind; serve immediately.
