Flame-kissed asparagus spears are tossed in salsa verde and served with citrus-marinated beets and a dollop of whipped ricotta in this elegant spring appetizer. It also makes an excellent side dish for grilled lamb, poultry, or fish.

This recipe comes from chef Kevin Johnson of The Grocery in Charleston, South Carolina.
