1 pound asparagus - peeled and trimmed

2 tablespoons pine nuts
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 tsp. salt
2 ounces goat cheese

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil - add asparagus and cook until crisp-tender, 3-4 minutes. Drian. Meanwhile in a skillet lightly toast the pine nuts over med-high heat, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes - set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the lime juice, oil and salt until smooth. Add the asparagus and toss well - top with goat cheese and toasted pine nuts before serving.

Note: I usually cook my asparagus in the micorwave.
