Grilled Asparagus Salad with Goats Cheese

asparagus

You know I love my cruciferous veggies, but there’s another nutrient-packed green that is so much fun to cook with – asparagus! It’s so good for you – full of antioxidants (at the top of the list of fruits and veggies, actually) and a rich source of glutathione, which helps detox and break down harmful free radicals.

This is a vegetable that some find to be an acquired taste – I believe it’s all in the preparation. My favorite way to eat asparagus is grilled, and the goats cheese in this recipe adds a rich, creamy flavor that makes a perfect side dish for even the most skeptical vegetable eater. Another amazing addition to an asparagus dish? An egg! Try topping this with a perfectly poached or fried egg, and you’ve got the perfect Meatless Monday meal.
