Ingredients

3 cups fresh asparagus

1 cup canned white kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 cup fresh radishes, sliced

1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled

2 Tbsp chopped green onion

2 tsp fresh lemon juice

2 tsp fresh peppermint herb

1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

1/8 tsp black pepper

Directions

  1. Rinse asparagus in water. Hold both ends of one spear; snap outward so tough, fibrous end snaps off.  Trim the other spears to this length, discarding tough ends. 
  2. Steam asparagus, covered, for 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Rinse with cold water and drain.
  3. Combine asparagus and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine the green onion, lemon juice and and remaining ingredients in small bowl; stir well with whisk. Pour over asparagus mixture; toss gently to coat.
