Grilled Asparagus with Cashews

Norma DeRemer


This is so good. Just had it at my neighbors house this past week end. Had to ask her for the recipe. Will sure make this again on our grill. I think I will add a little Soy Sauce to mine when I make it, just to perk it up a little.

Cover grill and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, rotating packet 1/2 turn after four minutes until asparagus is tender.
To serve, cut a large x across top of each packet. Carefully fold back foil to allow steam to escape.
Sporinkle with cashews. And divide packet between two people is desired. Serve hot with your favorite grilled meats or fish.
