Grilled Asparagus & Potatoes with Preserved Lemon Vinaigrette

Tossed with fresh parsley and lemon vinaigrette, this spring side boasts a lovely smokiness from the grill.

Ingredients:
1 pound asparagus stalks, trimmed of tough ends
1 pound fingerling potatoes, washed, scrubbed and cut in half
¼ cup olive oil
¾ cup preserved lemon vinaigrette (see recipe)
¼ cup freshly-chopped parsley
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Preheat a charcoal or gas grill, brush grate lightly with olive oil. On a large sheet pan, spread out asparagus and potatoes. Drizzle with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper.

2. Over medium heat, grill asparagus and potato halves (cut side down) until tender and just slightly charred, about 8-10 minutes, turning and flipping as needed.

3. Remove from the grill and transfer to a serving platter. Toss with the preserved lemon vinaigrette and fresh parsley, seasoning with more salt and pepper, as needed.
