Greek Style Grilled Asparagus Salad

I love veggies, I really do. Eating veggies and fruits is my way of balancing my obsession with sweets. This somehow makes me feel better, at least in some areas in my diet I am being good.

Greek Style Grilled Asparagus Salad

I especially love salad or side dishes that are easy to prepare, like this one.

Grilled Asparagus Salad

I made this Greek Style Grilled Asparagus Salad as a side dish to Roasted Chicken. I don’t even mind eating it on its own. It feels like eating nuts, which I love. It is worth buying Asparagus for this recipe. Let’s get started!

 Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cups tomato, sliced
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olive

Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice or Balsamic vinaigrette

 Instructions:

  1. Mix olive oil, salt, pepper and lemon juice.
  2. Toss the asparagus spears in the oil, salt and pepper and grill over medium-high heat until crisp-tender and slightly charred. Set aside remaining dressing.
    • If you want to bake it or roast it, Bake at 350F for 10 minutes or until the Asparagus is cook. I like mine a little bit crunchy and not too over bake.
  3. Toss Cherry Tomato and Kalamata Olive in the salad dressing
  4. Serve topped with the tomatoes and the kalamata olive.

Note: If you do not want to grill the Asparagus, you can also steam, roast or bake it.
