This is our go-to, always easy, always tasty, fresh veggie side. It goes with practically everything and I've found that asparagus is nearly always available at the grocery store year round. I hesitated posting this recipe because it is sooooooo easy. But - it's a basic and a staple at our house, so I thought it was worth sharing.
Prepping asparagus is really a cinch. All you need to do is wash and trim. To figure out where you should trim your ends take on and bend until is snaps in to two pieces. Use that breaking line as a guide for trimming the rest of the bunch.
Toss in olive oil, and sprinkle with kosher salt. Kosher salt is the secret ingredient. Regular old table salt just won't be the same. Spread on to a baking sheet and throw it into the oven for 15 minutes. That's it! A perfect, fresh, and delicious addition to your dinner.
I hope this side becomes a go-to in your house like it is in ours.
