caesar grilled asparagus
Michigan has the second most diverse agriculture industry in the country, growing more than 300 agricultural commodities. Asparagus grows in Michigan from April to June, making it one of the earliest spring crops ready for harvest. Not only is this vegetable delicious, but it is also nutritious because it is rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, folate, iron and calcium.
When you cook asparagus, make sure to only cook it for a maximum of six minutes, otherwise it will lose its bright green color, crunch and nutrients. For this recipe, stop by your local farmers market and pick up a couple bunches of asparagus while it’s in season!
