    1. Preheat the oven's grill. Place the asparagus on a grill tray and toss with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Grill about 5cm from the heat until tender shaking the tin halfway through so that the asparagus cooks evenly. Set aside.
    2. In a bowl combine the asparagus, tomatoes, basil, shallot, oil, garlic, salt and pepper.
    3. Using a slotted spoon, spoon asparagus mixture onto toasted bread. Sprinkle with Stilton.

    Great taste combination, I used a soft blue cheese and the smell with the basil was lovely. Everyone said how good it was, thanks  -  15 Oct 2016  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Thank you, thank you, thank you! This is now my new favourite starter. The asparagus gives it a great crunch - bit messy to eat but so delicious  -  28 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
