get in the kitchen with her. Lucky for me, Refinery29's #GimmeFive Challenge presented the perfect opportunity for a cold call. To my absolute delight, she agreed, and the next thing I knew, I was on a flight to sunny California to meet Tia in the kitchen.
For this recipe, she used two of our #GimmeFive essential ingredients — olive oil and feta — to make a super simple but delicious take on roasted asparagus. I am not a huge fan of asparagus and I almost never buy it at the store, but I have to say this dish changed my opinion! I am definitely going to keep this one in my recipe arsenal to pull out whenever I need a fast weeknight side, or a solid dish to bring to a summer BBQ. Plus, the vinaigrette is all-purpose. I love that you can also use it to dress a salad, marinate chicken, or top off a different roasted vegetable (or, just eat it off the spoon, like I did!).
