1 pound asparagus--peeled, trimmed, and halved lengthwise if very thick
2 tablespoons pine nuts
1 tablespoon lime juice, plus the zest of 1 lime
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons honey
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 ounces goat cheese
How to Make It
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain. Meanwhile, in a skillet, lightly toast the pine nuts over medium heat, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the lime juice, lime zest, oil, honey, and salt until smooth. Add the asparagus and toss well. Top with the goat cheese and toasted pine nuts before serving.
Fantastic. Takes almost no effort to make and goes great with lots of things, especially the Steaks With Caramel-Brandy Sauce. Just made it as a side to the Steaks With Caramel-Brandy Sauce tonight and my parents and I absolutely adored it.
Toss the goat cheese and pine nuts with the asparagus instead of just topping the asparagus with it, it mixes up and combines the flavors better for an all around better experience.
