Today I’m excited to be updating the photos for this absolutely delicious Asparagus Salad with Cherry Tomatoes, Kalamata Olives, and Feta. If you’re looking for a new salad idea for a weekend barbecue, this is a delicious option. And everyone who likes asparagus is going to swoon over this Asparagus Salad!

This salad uses barely-cooked asparagus so it’s a good option for people who don’t love the crunch of raw asparagus. And of course the use of tomatoes, Kalamata olives, Feta Cheese, and lemon gives this asparagus salad Greek flavors, and I used Greek Seasoning in the simple dressing to emphasize that a bit more. I could make a meal out of this salad with asparagus, cherry tomatoes, olives, and Feta on a warm spring or summer evening; enjoy!

What ingredients do you need for this recipe?

  • fresh asparagus
  • cherry tomatoes
  • Kalamata olives, or use regular black olives
  • Feta cheese
  • fresh squeezed lemon juice, I used my fresh frozen lemon juice
  • Greek Seasoning (affiliate link)
  • extra-virgin olive oil

Can you make the asparagus salad with leftover asparagus?

You can make this salad with leftover asparagus if you’re lucky enough to end up with some, but if leftover asparagus is a pipe dream for you, just quickly cook some asparagus in olive oil and then turn it into this tasty salad.

Can you use regular black olives?

If you’re not a fan of the slightly bitter flavor of Kalamata olives you can use regular black olives in this tasty salad.
