Herbed Olive Feta Melange

We really loved this recipe. The only problem is I did a lot of adjusting due to us not liking olives and I didn't have a flavored olive oil so I just added some chopped up roasted garlic instead, which in the end we didn't taste over the herbs.

  1. I love asparagus! This looks like a great summer dish.

  2. We love asparagus too. But, hubby is such a fuddy duddy and I don't think he would eat it. But, it sure looks good to me.
