Grilled Asparagus with Balsamic Caper Vinaigrette #cookoutweek

*Disclosure: I received product to sample from ­­­­­The French Farm.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.



Welcome to Cookout Week!

My first post is sponsored by the wonderful people at The French Farm.

The French Farm brings the taste of Europe to the US by importing gourmet foods from small, family-owned businesses.

Check them out below on social media!



The French Farm sent me Balsamic Vinegar and Capers.

I decided that the two were a perfect match, so I tossed them together in an amazing vinaigrette for asparagus!

Grilled asparagus is the perfect side dish for any BBQ!




Grilled Asparagus with Balsamic Caper Vinaigrette
Adapted from My Recipes

1 lb asparagus
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
½ tsp salt
½ tsp stone ground mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
¼ tsp black pepper
2 tsp capers

Spray a grill-safe cooking grate with non-stick spray.  Place the asparagus on top and place on indirect heat on a grill heated to medium heat.  Cook the asparagus for about 10 minutes, or until tender and slightly charred, turning a few times during cooking.

Meanwhile, place the oil, vinegar, salt, mustard, garlic, and pepper in a small blender and pulse until combined.  Add the capers and pulse one additional time to coarsely chop.

Once the asparagus is done cooking, place it on a platter and drizzle with vinaigrette and serve.
