This is my absolute favorite way to prepare asparagus, and one that is sure to put a smile on the faces of your family or guests. The process is simple, and the result is totally delicious. Simply coat asparagus in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and salt and toss them, on a hot grill for a few minutes, and, violá, a side dish fit for a king!
