Summertime for me means fresh asparagus. I love it! I love everything about it! Well, maybe not everything. If you eat too much of it… well, if you’ve ever done that you know what I’m talking about. Kinda like eating a ton of beets.
Anywhoooooo….. back to the asparagus. I love it! (Did I already say that???)
This recipe is so darn easy and it really is fantastic!
Asparagus Salad with Lemon and Feta
Source: Kraft Foods Food and Family Magazine (Spring 2012)
* 1 1/2 lbs. fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
* 1 Tbsp. dijon mustard
* 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
* 3 Tbsp. olive oil
* 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
Bring about 1/2 inch of water to a boil in large skillet. Add asparagus: cover. Simmer for 3 to 4 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender: drain. Rinse asparagus with cold water: drain well on paper towels.
Meanwhile, mix mustard and lemon juice in small bowl. Gradually add oil, whisking constantly until well blended and thickened.
Place asparagus on plate; top with mustard sauce and cheese.
