Ingredients

  • 1 Pound Asparagus Cut into 2 Inch Pieces
  • 3 Plum Tomatoes Cut Into Chunks
  • 6 to 10 Olives of Choice
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Lemon Juiced
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 6 Turns of Fresh Ground Pepper
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Oregano
  • 1 Tbsp Crumbled Blue Cheese

Instructions

  • Cook Asparagus in slow boiling water about one inch deep in a skillet with lid. I find this produces better results with the asparagus. Steam Asparagus about 3 to 5 minutes based on your desired doneness.
  • Mix together Olive Oil, Lemon Juice, Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder and Oregano in a bowl big enough to hold all the ingredients. Mix together all ingredients except Blue Cheese.
  • Toss Salad to Coat. Let Marinate 1 to 2 hours before serving. Top with Blue Cheese before serving.
