This is summery in colour and taste.  Choose the biggest, freshest, fattest bunch of asparagus too.  Those skinny stalks supermarkets sometimes sell do not do this dish any justice.  You can make this ahead too.  Just cook the veggies then throw the dressing on when you are ready to serve. Voila! A tasty dish!

This is another dish that I serve as a side dish to my bbqs.  If you come to my bbqs expecting just burgers and sausages you are going to be sorely disappointed…or pleasantly surprised…I think the bbq is just another cooking tool and a great excuse to eat fabulous food outside!  It helps that I live in a warm country now …I can’t recall having this positive feeling back in the UK….
