Lightly coated in butter, lemon and a touch of heat grilling asparagus is a summertime must! Besides the nice savory kick, one of the best things about this dish is how easy and quick it is to prepare. Throw on the grill for just a few minutes, and viola - delicious veggies for an outdoor summer side dish. This veggie is so verstaile it can pair with most red meat entrees and a glass of Red Mountain Cabernet.
