Number of Servings: 1

6 Ounce(s) Blue Cheese, w/o rind &
3 Tablespoon(s) Walnuts, chopped
3 Tablespoon(s) Chopped green onions
2 Tablespoon(s) Chopped parsley
1 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Grated lemon zest
2 1/2 Pound(s) Asparagus
such as Roquefort or Danish Blue ** including 2 inches of green stems
Place blue cheese, walnuts, onions, parsley and lemon zest in a bowl
and mix well. (Blue cheese relish can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and
refrigerate. Bring to room temperature 30 minutes before serving.) To
prepare asparagus, cut off and discard tough, woody ends of stalks.
Bring enough water to cover asparagus to boil in a large deep saucepan
or skillet. Lightly salt water and add the asparagus. Simmer until
just tender, 3-5 minutes. Remove asparagus and drain well. Taste and
season with more salt if needed. To serve, arrange asparagus on heated
platter or in a shallow serving bowl. Top with blue cheese relish.
