Ingredients

  • 2 pounds thick asparagus ends trimmed - I used 1 pound white and 1 pound green
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or to taste
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup feta cheese crumbled

Instructions

  • Preheat the grill to high.
  • Arrange the cleaned and trimmed asparagus spears on a baking sheet covered with foil for easy clean-up.
  • Drizzle the asparagus with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and season with salt, pepper, garlic, onion powder, Italian herbs. Toss well to combine.
  • Transfer the asparagus spears onto the hot grill, perpendicular to the grates so they don't fall through. Cover and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until nicely browned crisp, do not overcook. Transfer from the grill back onto the foil-lined baking sheet and let it cool.
  • Cut grilled asparagus into bite-sized pieces and add it to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the remaining olive oil, lemon zest, and lemon juice to the bowl, toss to combine.
  • Add the feta and gently toss. Taste and adjust for salt, pepper, and lemon juice.
  • Transfer to a serving platter and enjoy.

Notes

  • Tie the stalks together so you can chop off the ends in one go.
  • Don’t take your eyes off the grill. These veggies are usually done in just 3 to 4 minutes!
  • For a more visually appetizing dish, we like using a combo of green and white spears.
