  • 1 pound asparagus , ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt, divided
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese (for dairy-free, omit and use roasted pine nuts instead)
