Leave a comment

It’s spring time, which means it’s asparagus time! Yummy Asparagus. You can prepare them several ways but nothing beats the flavor of grilled asparagus. The smoky flavor, the char marks. Tender, but still with a little crunch. Delish! This is a meal you can feel good about eating every bite of. Asparagus is loaded with nutrients, has detoxifying properties, is Grilled-Asparagus-1-10packed with antioxidants, contains anti-aging properties and is a natural diuretic. With all that goodness, this is a must make dish!

  • 2 heads radicchio, sliced
  • 1 head romaine, sliced
  • 1 basket of clover or alfalfa sprouts 6 cherry tomatoes, cut in quarters

Directions:
