Healthy and easy side salad

Grilled Asparagus and Grapes Salad
Grilled asparagus is my all time favorite. This quick grilled asparagus recipe with simple vinaigrette is an excellent side salad which goes perfect with grilled meats, burgers or fried rice. I am not using any sweetener or honey in the vinaigrette to avoid some sugar calories, instead the natural sweetness of grapes and cherry tomatoes balances the flavor perfectly. If you like, you can add few raisins as another sweet element and good source of antioxidants.

Savita's Notes:
To keep Asparagus fresh longer in refrigerator, submerge stems in 1/2 inch water. Just cut 1/2 inch hard stems from bottom and then let the asparagus bunch stand in water. Change water everyday until you decide to use it.
