Asparagus with pine nuts, cranberries and feta

Introduction

I love this as a side dish with Salmon or chicken, but if you are vegitarian you could double the portion and have a decent meal of it too. I love this as a side dish with Salmon or chicken, but if you are vegitarian you could double the portion and have a decent meal of it too.

    1 bunch of Asparagus (about 2 C cleaned and chopped)
    1/3 C pine nuts
    2T olive oil
    1/3 C Craisins (dried cranberries)
    pinch of sea salt to taste
    1/4 C Feta Cheese crumbles

Directions

1.Break off or trim the woody ends from the asparagus and discard. Set the spears aside.
2.Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the pine nuts, cranberries, and salt. Cook and stir until the pine nuts start to look translucent, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the asparagus spears and cook, adding a little more olive oil if needed, until stalks are bright green and tender, about 5 to 8 minutes. Serve on a platter with the cranberries and nuts spooned over the top of the asparagus.
