All year long I sit waiting on pins and needles for asparagus season. To me, there is nothing more perfect than tender asparagus with a light coat of olive oil. I could eat this all day long.
This simple side dish is perfect for any spring occasion. The balsamic vinegar adds a beautiful, unique flavor. Make sure to bake until just tender, nothing is worse than soggy asparagus.
It’s the simple things in life that make is so gosh darn enjoyable.
