Ingredients:  
3 tablespoons finely chopped green garlic
cup finely chopped parsley
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
Salt and pepper
1 pound pencil-thin asparagus, tough ends snapped off
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
4 ounces crumbled feta
Handful of olives
Crushed red pepper, to taste

Directions:
Directions:
Heat a cast-iron pan or broiler, or prepare a charcoal grill. Make the chimichurri sauce: In a small bowl, stir together chopped green garlic, parsley, oregano, olive oil and 1/4 cup water. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Spread asparagus on a baking sheet, drizzle very lightly with oil and sprinkle with salt.

Transfer asparagus to hot cast-iron pan or to a grill grate that is placed very close to live coals; alternatively if broiling, place pan as close to broiler element as possible. Let asparagus cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until nicely charred, with a few burnt and blistered spots. Asparagus cooked this way tastes best if slightly undercooked and still bright green.

Put cooked asparagus on a platter. Stir vinegar into chimichurri and spoon sauce generously over spears. Top with crumbled feta and olives, then sprinkle with crushed red pepper and serve.
