Place the asparagus on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and spread them out on a single flat layer.

4

Roast under the broiler until tender and slightly brown. About 8 minutes. Keep an eye on them so that they do not burn.

5

Combine the vinaigrette ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk well until combined.

6

Place the remaining vegetables in a large bowl. Pour the vinaigrette over them and toss to coat. Add the feta cheese and figs and toss until combined.

7

As soon as the asparagus is ready, take it out of the oven and allow it to come to room temperature.

8

You may chop the asparagus into 2-inch pieces and toss into the salad or place a layer of the asparagus onto a serving dish and top with the salad.

9

Serve immediately with toasted bread alongside any meat dish.

This dish also tastes great with poached or boiled eggs on top. Enjoy!
