Grilled Asparagus Salad

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Michigan Asparagus in conjunction with #BBQWeek. All opinions are mine alone.

Grilled Asparagus Halloumi Salad served with Pistachio Pesto is a delicious spring recipe that compliments your chicken, fish, or beef as a side dish, or can be made larger as a light dinnertime meal! This is also a keto friendly, lower carbohydrate recipe for those who are carb conscious!

Grilled Asparagus Halloumi Salad

Asparagus is one of our mutually favorite vegetables for Grumpy and I. We love to eat it roasted in the oven with some salt and pepper, drizzled with a little browned butter balsamic dressing. Now that we are into grilling weather, we love to cook it on the grill!

Grilled Asparagus Halloumi Salad

Springtime recipes are normally reminiscent of light, bright flavors. This grilled asparagus recipe is the epitome of that description!  This recipe could not be any simpler! You make my recipe for Homemade Pistachio Pesto made ahead of time or you can serve this with a store bought pesto.

Lemon really brings this recipe to life pairs super well with the asparagus!

Growing asparagus really is a labor of love. I say this because it can take 2-3 years after planting for you to be able to begin harvesting it! However, once you have it, it is plentiful! When we were growing it, we would this every night. Yes, we love it that much. 

Thank you to Michigan Asparagus for sponsoring #BBQWeek and offering the amazing prize package.

Fresh asparagus is the taste of spring and Michigan is one of the largest domestic asparagus growers in the United States. Michigan Asparagus is available mid-May through June and is the only hand snapped harvested asparagus which means more usable asparagus and less waste. Local Michigan farmers produce approximately 25 million pounds of Michigan Asparagus during the state’s 6-7 week harvest. Michigan Asparagus has excellent flavor and a long shelf life. It is a nutrient-dense, low-calorie vegetable with no fat, no cholesterol, and very little sodium.
