Fresh lemon and finely grated parmesan create an unbeatable flavor combination! Bright citrus flavors from the lemon are mellowed out by the rich and nutty notes of parmesan cheese. Enjoy this easy asparagus recipe alone or pair it with grilled chicken and steamed rice for a well-balanced meal.

Lemons, persimmons, and clementines are the shining citrus stars of this hearty side salad. Tri-colored quinoa helps to make this salad more filling along with sliced avocado for an added dose of healthy fats. Pomegranate seeds create bursts of flavor within every bite and an added pop of color, contrasting the deep orange and green hues of citrus and kale.
