A fabulous combination of fresh asparagus and peas, tossed with orange segments and crumbled gorgonzola.You can use either gorgonzola or feta cheese for this recipe. Gorgonzola is a blue-veined cheese with a crumbly texture and a nutty aroma. It is mainly produced in northern Italy. Feta cheese is a highly popular Greek cheese that's a mix of goat cheese and sheep's cheese. It has a salty, tangy taste to it. Either will work well in this dish, but if you want a milder cheese, Feta will be the best choice. Serve as a side dish to steak.
