Grilled Asparagus With Dijon Mustard Vinaigrette – easy springtime recipe, ready in 30 minutes.asparagus-dijon-mustard-vinaigrette-recipe

Since it is officially Spring, even though April is generally a cold month around here, I think it is time for some grilled asparagus.

Did I ever tell you that I prefer my asparagus grilled? Of course, I can have them steamed or baked, but I just love the charred outside and crunchy inside of grilled asparagus. While you do need to watch the cooking time when grilling your asparagus, this extra time is totally worth it.


Tips to make grilled asparagus:

  • For grilling – I prefer thick asparagus. It is more difficult to over cook them, when they are thick and they also absorb more flavor.
  • You can always double the amount of asparagus in the recipe and use the left overs for salads.
  • Paired with light flavorful Dijon mustard vinaigrette these asparagus taste amazing!

These are perfect for a side dish, for brunch or a family gathering.


Benefits of asparagus:

  • Asparagus are a great source of vitamins K, B2, C and also dietary fiber. I remember being scared to try them as a child, because of their weird look?! I know, that’s crazy! They’ve turned into one of my favorite vegetables since then.

What to serve grilled asparagus with:

  • I added soft boiled eggs to this dish, but they are totally optional.

  1. Asparagus is my absolute favorite vegetable! Love that you grilled it!! That dijon mustard vinaigrette sounds perfect along with the asparagus. Can’t wait to try it!!

  2. Asparagus is one of my fave veggies too, Mira, and I love your way of cooking it. I usually pan fry it which I think probably makes it taste similar.

    The dressing sounds wonderful – I’ve never eaten my asparagus like this, but I think it might be time to start!

  3. I’ve never tried grilled asparagus before, but now I feel like I should! It looks so perfect, Mira!

  4. I LOVE asparagus season – I seriously can’t get enough! And that dijon mustard vinaigrette sounds amazing, on any and all veggies!

  5. My husband and I are huge fans of grilled and roasted asparagus. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us at the Over the Moon Link Party.
