Grilled Asparagus with Lemon Sauce
Rinse the asparagus, peel the bottom third, cut off the woody ends and blanch the asparagus in boiling salted water for 6 minutes. Rinse until cool with cold water and drain well. For the vinaigrette, rinse the lemons in hot water, cut 2 lemons into thin slices and squeeze the juice from the third lemon.
Mix the lemon juice with the oil and season with salt, pepper and sugar. Cook the asparagus on a hot grill, turning as needed, for 3 - 5 minutes. Arrange on a plate with the lemon slices and serve drizzled with the vinaigrette.

Green asparagus grows above ground, unlike white asparagus, which is why the green stalks contain more vitamins and minerals, including higher levels of chlorophyll and vitamin C. These water-soluble vitamins promote the absorption of iron into the body.
