3 tablespoons green onions -- (scallions) chopped
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest

Bring enough water to cover asparagus to boil in a large deep saucepan or skillet. Lightly salt water and add the asparagus. Simmer until just tender, 3-5 minutes. Remove asparagus and drain well. Taste and season with more salt if needed. To serve, arrange asparagus on heated platter or in a shallow serving bowl. Top with blue cheese relish. Serve hot.
