Grilled Asparagus Salad


  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 head fennel, fronds removed, halved and cored and finely slice crosswise
  • ½ c fresh dill, chopped
  • ⅓ c Castelvetrano olives, torn into thirds

For the Vinaigrette:

  • Juice from 1 lemon, about ¼ cup
  • ⅓ c Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Rice Vinegar
  • Salt and pepper


Preheat your grill.

Trim the bottom 2” off of the asparagus and toss with avocado oil. Grill over high direct heat for 2-3 minutes, just until grill marks can be seen.

Cool for 10 minutes then chop into 2” pieces.

In a mixing bowl, toss together the chopped asparagus, sliced fennel, dill, torn olives and vinaigrette to taste.

Serve chilled or at room temperature.

For the Vinaigrette: Combine all ingredients in a sealable jar. Whisk or shake vigorously for 20 seconds to emulsify. Taste for salt, pepper and vinegar. Store in the refrigerator up to one week, until ready to serve.
