Asparagus Salad with Lemon and Feta

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.

Enjoy!
