"This is a perfect spring/summer asparagus dish with deliciously whipped feta. You can serve it both as a simple appetizer or even as a main! Roasted in olive oil, along side capers, garlic and lemon, the flavors don't stop there! Here's a simple trick to elevate your dish: use the leftover oil from roasting to make a vinaigrette. Just add a splash of vinegar and honey for a delicious sauce. Finish with an extra squeeze of lemon juice and a honey drizzle for a perfectly rounded plate that impresses. The garlic used in roasting is delicious to spread over bread for an extra treat."
