Asparagus Appetizers Recipes

Springtime means that fresh spring veggies are finally in season and ready for all of us to enjoy (at the best prices they will be all year!). Asparagus is a favorite around our home. I will get it from the store when I can find it on sale. I also love to find it growing wild in the ditches!

My very favorite way to make asparagus is to coat it with a bit of olive oil. Then I grill it until it’s bright green and serve it with a little salt. So tasty!

Asparagus can be one of the more tricky vegetables to cook with. Not because of it’s flavor but rather because of it’s odd shape and texture. Today I’m sharing this wonderful list of delicious Asparagus Appetizer Recipes with you so that you have a variety of dishes to choose from the next time you want to make it!
