Step 1
Cook the asparagus in the salted boiling water for about 3 minutes until tender. Remove from the water and place into ice water immediately to retain the bright green color.

Season the asparagus with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, salt and pepper. Place aside for later.
Step 3
In a new bowl, combine the chopped tomatoes, sliced onions, lemon juice and zest with the remaining olive oil, then season with salt and pepper.
Step 4
Place the asparagus in the center of the plate and garnish with the marinated tomatoes and onions, crumble Gorgonzola cheese, boiled eggs, and fresh basil.
Step 5
Drizzle some olive oil around the plate.
