Grilled Balsamic Asparagus Salad

Grilled asparagus is my spirit vegetable , the taste is unbelievable compared to the old days of steamed asparagus.

It is literally so hot in Spain that the idea of cooking anything that takes longer then 10min is a no go !

This salad is a great lunch or dinner as the grilled asparagus makes it feel more like a meal then just a plain salad and its perfect for meatless Mondays !
