Asparagus Salad Garlic and Feta

Yields 4 servings.

 1 bunch of asparagus (about 30 spears)
 ¼ tsp coarse sea salt
 1 clove of garlic, minced
 ¼ cup extra-virgin Greek olive oil
 zest of 1 lemon
 juice of 1/2 lemon
 5-6 sprigs of thyme leaves (or 1 tsp dried Greek oregano)
 ¼ cup freshly chopped parsley
 fresh ground pepper to taste
 ½ cup crumbled Feta cheese

1

Rinse the asparagus under cold water and drain/pat-dry. Snap-off and discard the woody ends. Shave the asparagus spears thinly with a box grater or vegetable peeler. Place in a bowl with the coarse sea salt and lemon juice and allow to sit for 15 minutes (the salt and lemon juice will cure the asparagus).

2

Add the minced garlic, lemon zest, olive oil, parsley and fresh thyme leaves and gently toss. Adjust seasoning, top with fresh ground pepper, crumbled Feta cheese and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil. Serve immediately.
