Ingredients

1 pound asparagus
3 tablespoons olive oil, extra-virgin
4 large tomatillos
cored and chopped
*
1 small tomatoes
cored, chopped
¼ cup cojita
crumbled, or parmesan if you don't have cojita
*
1 x salt
to taste
*
1 x black pepper
fresh ground, to taste
*

Directions

Snap off and discard tough ends of asparagus; rinse spears.

Pour water to a depth of 1 inch into a wide frying pan and bring to a boil over high heat.

Add asparagus and cook, uncovered, until barely tender when pierced (3 to 5 minutes); drain.

Immerse in ice water. When cool, drain again; arrange on a platter or on 4 salad plates.

Mix oil, tomatillos, and tomato; spoon over asparagus.

Sprinkle with cheese and garnish with lemon wedges.

If desired, season to taste with salt and pepper.

Cojita is a Mexican cheese similar to parmesan but with a milder flavor. If you don't have or can't find the cojita cheese you can substitue some grated parmesan or romano cheese.

Excellent recipe, loved how quick and easy it was to prepare and that it could easily be made in advance. The tomatillo's really work well simply with olive oil, tomato and salt and complimented the asparagus nicely. Clean and fresh flavors, perfect side dish for a hot day.
