The only problem with this recipe is that I should have doubled it! It was delicious, pretty, and healthy. My dinner guests ate every single spear and olive.
I place the asparagus, garlic, oil and pepper in heavy duty foil and grilled 15 minutes to perfection. I left the olives whole. Made for ZWT 6 Thanks.
Very good. Not amazing, but they were what I expected. Very fresh tasting because the flavors of the olives didn't do too much. Made for ZWT6
We enjoyed this fast and easy asparagus recipe. Liked the addition of the kalamata olives, which were very nice. I might try Engrossed suggestion and next time omit the water and stir fry it. We served this as a side to our red snapper. Made for Family Picks ZWT4.
OMG! This is so fast and so easy. I usually roast my Asparagus but when I have Greek olives in stock will definitely use this recipe. Thanks so much.
Wonderful! I made this as directed, but added a squirt of lemon juice as suggested by Engrossed, which was good too. The Kalamata olives put this asparagus over the top. Thanks Charmie. Made for ZWT4.
This is a GREAT asparagus recipe! The olives and garlic went really well with it. Next time I think I'll try it without the water and stir-fry it. I will also probably try it with your suggestions of eggplant and zucchini. Fresh lemon juice might be nice on it too. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
A super easy recipe and so colourful on the table. I used very thin, almost miniature asparagus that I get at an Asian grocers so I went with just 3 minutes cooking time. The olives surprised me with the asparagus -- quite good, though I would never have thought to try it if you hadn't suggested it!
Wonderful Recipe Charmie! I loved the Kalamata Olives with the asparagus! This was so easy and we loved it! Great Combination! Thanks for posting~
