How To Make Grilled Asparagus Salad with Lemon & Feta
This grilled asparagus salad is a great way to get acquainted with vegetarian food. It has the zestiness of lemon and some creamy feta to finish off.
Preheat the grill to high.
Place the asparagus spears on a foil-lined baking sheet for easy clean-up. Directly on the prepared baking sheet, toss the asparagus with 2 tablespoons of the oil, the salt and the pepper.
Place the asparagus spears on the grill, making sure they are perpendicular to grates so they don’t fall through. Set the baking sheet near the grill.
Cover and cook the asparagus for 3 to 4 minutes, until nicely browned on one side and still crisp — do not overcook.
Remove the asparagus from the grill and place back on the foil-lined baking dish. Let the asparagus cool.
Transfer the spears to cutting board and cut on the bias into bite-sized pieces. Place the cut asparagus in a mixing bowl. Add the remaining tablespoon olive oil, lemon zest and lemon juice; toss well.
Add the feta and toss gently. Taste and adjust seasoning with more salt, pepper and lemon juice.
Transfer to a serving platter. Serve room temperature or cold.
