Grilled Asparagus and Zucchini Spears with Parmesan Cheese

Grilled Asparagus and Zucchini Spears with Parmesan CheeseWe were grilling some chicken for dinner and I decided to make a quick marinade for some asparagus and zucchini. The marinade was light but full of flavor and so good. I loved the fresh basil and garlic with the bite of the red wine vinegar. My husband did a great job of grilling dinner… the chicken was moist and tender and the vegetables were perfect – still a bit crisp.

  • 1 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 5-6 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 1-2 large zucchini, cut into spears
  • 1 bunch of asparagus, cleaned and trimmed of ends
  • 1-2 tbsp fresh Parmesan, shredded

Combine all ingredients together and mix thoroughly. Add the vegetables and marinate for at least 30 minutes prior to grilling.

    Yummy, this is one of my favorite things to eat in the summer. I usually just brush mine with olive oil and salt and pepper. I will have to try out this marinade, sounds good.

    Oh lordy, this looks great. I like how you sliced the zuccchini, and grilled asparagus is so terrific. The marinade sounds great. I need to used vinegar more often in marinading. Topping the veggies with parmesan … YUM!

    That is a nice way to enjoy some asparagus and zucchini. I think that adding a splash of balsamic vinegar would be great as well.
