Grilled Asgaragus

Tall and Small just can't get enough of George this week!  This time we're grilling up the perfect early spring side dish - asparagus!  You really can be a lean, mean, fighting machine with this scrumptious and delightfully simple recipe!

- 1lb asparagus (or more!)
- 1 Tbs olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- zest of one lemon

Bring water to a boil in a medium-large pot.  Blanch asparagus until slightly tender.  Meanwhile, mix olive oil, salt, and lemon zest.

Remove asparagus from water and brush with olive oil mixture.  Grill on George Foreman grill for about five minutes.

This asparagus dish is the perfect combination of tangy and summery sweetness - you won't forget that warmer weather is right around the corner (even during the rainiest of weeks in Philadelphia!).
