This rustic griddled asparagus dish with crumbly feta, black olives, oregano and an olive oil and lemon dressing is delicious as a light starter for guests to enjoy. Ready in just 15 minutes, this easy starter is full of colour, flavour and is sure to impress.

To make the dressing, whisk the oil and lemon juice with 1 tbsp water in a jug. Pour into a small serving dish and set aside. Put the feta, olives, lemon zest and oregano in a bowl. Season with freshly ground black pepper and toss to combine.

Toss the asparagus with the oil; season well. Put a griddle pan over a high heat until smoking hot. Working in batches (if needed), griddle the spears in a single layer for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until just
tender and lightly charred.

Arrange the asparagus on a serving platter. Scatter with the feta mixture and spoon over the dressing. Garnish with the extra herb leaves and serve warm.
