As we head into Memorial Day weekend, we are in the middle of peak harvest season for Michigan Asparagus. With such a short harvest season, we have to fit asparagus into our meals as much as possible! To make this easy for you, we’ve compiled some asparagus-filled recipes from some of the most talented bloggers and chefs on the web. These light, delicious recipes are easy-to-transport and easy-to-keep as you head off to your weekend BBQ.

While you’re noshing on these delicious recipes with family and friends, be sure to remember what this weekend is all about.  Thank you to all the men and women – and their families – for giving us the freedom to be able to relax and enjoy this weekend! Enjoy!
