I get so bored so quickly with bland veggies. Who’s with me?! An easy way to add some variety and some flavor to your dinner is to marinade your vegetables in Caesar dressing. Now that’s grilling season, I’m giving you an excuse to fire it up and try out a new recipe! What better reason to eat your veggies? 😉
Primal Kitchen just came out with a brand new Paleo and Whole30 approved dressing. This Caesar dressing is dairy, soy, gluten and sunflower oil free. In fact, it’s made with 100% pure avocado oil, meaning using this dressing actually makes you healthier. Can you say that about your typical Caesar dressing? NOPE.
Since I’ve gotten my hands on it I’ve been using it constantly. One of my favorite ways I’ve found to add this into my meals besides the typical Caesar salad is this grilled Caesar asparagus. I’m not a huge fan of asparagus on it’s own, so I definitely don’t eat enough of it. Turns out, adding my favorite dressing to it is a pretty good way to sneak some into my diet.
The only thing that makes me happier than delicious food is finding ways to make it that’s quick and easy. With basically no added effort and no added dishes, you can make these marinaded asparagus spears for a tasty addition to any meal. All I do is grab a big baggie and throw in the ingredients 20 minutes prior to grilling.
For even less work? Recruit the significant other to do the grilling for you while you supervise 😉
- 1 generous handful asparagus (about what will fit in a fistful)
- 2-3 tablespoons Caesar dressing
- Salt and pepper to taste if desired
- Add ingredients to a large baggie
- Mix around so dressing has coated asparagus
- Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes prior to cooking
- Heat grill or grill pan on medium-high heat
- Add asparagus to grill in a single layer
- Flip halfway through grilling
- Remove from heat once they’re at your desired amount of crispy (10-20 minutes)
