grilled asparagus

A quick and healthy (and vegetarian) side dish to spice up your usual meals. We love this as a snack as well to sit and munch on and not feel guilty at all.

Serves 4-6

250 g      asparagus spears, trimmed

¼ c         (60 ml) melted Clover Springbok butter

salt and freshly ground black pepper


Orange olive salsa

¼ c         (60 ml) chopped flat-leaf parsley

10           black olives, pitted and sliced

10 ml      lemon zest

5 ml        white wine vinegar

45 ml      Clover Krush orange juice

Brush the asparagus spears with the butter and season with salt and pepper. Grill on a hot braai or in a griddle pan for 2-3 minutes per side, turning frequently. Place onto a serving platter. Place the parsley, olives, anchovies, capers, lemon zest and vinegar into a small bowl. Whisk the orange juice and olive oil together and gradually stir into the salsa mixture.
