Marinated and Grilled Asparagus


I came up with his recipe by accident actually, I had some leftover citrus dressing and decided to marinate and then grill my Asparagus, wow did it turn out well! Letting the Asparagus marinate overnight really gave it a depth of flavor I had not experienced before.

I highly recommend trying this! Mix the below ingredients and use a blender or immersion blender to emulsify.

1/2 cup Orange Juice
Oil of your choice I used light olive oil
Champaign Vinegar to taste
Rice wine Vinegar
Sugar
Dash white pepper
Mandarin orange juice (leftover from a can, optional)

Let the Asparagus marinate for several hours up to overnight and cook on your grill. YUM!

I'm finally here! My human is helping me do this comment using her new software that types for her as she speaks, so she can rest her arms from her RSI – it's not bad,huh? But it does still make mistakes and my human has to keep stopping to correct it so it's a bit annoying and very slow – it takes us double the time to do the same thing! So please excuse any funny words or spellings in my comment!

Wow – this sounds so yummy! My human loves asparagus so she is definitely going to try out this recipe! Oh – and she's very happy this week because… Fringe is back!!!! Season Four started last Friday and thanks to my blog friends, she can now download from the Internet to watch. She was so excited!

Slobbers,
