Description

Crisp and tender asparagus topped with a combination of feta, diced tomatoes and shallots.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Fresh Asparagus
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 whole Shallot Finely Minced
  • 2 whole Ripe Tomatoes, Seeded And Diced
  • 3 ounces, weight Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • Salt And Pepper

Preparation

In a large skillet, lay the asparagus in a single layer (or as close to a single layer as you can get). Add water just until the asparagus is covered. Heat over medium-high heat until the water boils. Reduce the heat and let simmer until the asparagus is tender.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a medium skillet or saucepan over medium-high heat. Sauté the shallot until tender, 3–4 minutes. Add the diced tomatoes to the pan and cook 2–3 minutes, just to warm and wilt very slightly. Once the asparagus is tender, remove from the heat and drain. Remove the shallot-tomato mixture from the heat, stir in the feta, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Place the warm asparagus on a serving platter (or individual plates) and top with the tomato-feta mixture. Serve immediately.

This dish was absolutely amazing! It was MUCH better than I thought it would be. Definitely a dish I will make again!! It is worthy to be served in a 5 star restaurant!
