Garlic-Lime Asparagus

Today, I just want to share a quick, simple side dish. I adore asparagus, and we eat a lot of southwestern-inspired food, so this cumin-spiced Garlic-Lime Asparagus is a great accompaniment for those dishes. It’s easy to throw together and adds great color to your plate. Let me know if you try it!

  1. mmm I’ve never tried lime on asparagus before- I’ve only ever done butter and garlic. If you’re interested, I’d love for you to share a post at the a blog link up I’m hosting today. All you need is a URL of a post you’d like to contribute. It’s a great little circle of bloggers!
