  1. Step 1

    To make the pickled onion, combine the onion, vinegar, sugar and salt in a small bowl. Set aside for 30 mins to soften. Drain well.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add the yoghurt, chives and dill and stir until a soft dough forms. Divide into 4 even portions. Set aside for 15 mins to rest.
  3. Step 3

    While the dough is resting, place ricotta and 100g fetta in a medium bowl. Stir until well combined. Season.
  4. Step 4

    Heat a barbecue grill or chargrill on medium-high. Roll out 1 dough portion on a lightly floured surface to a 5mm-thick oval. Spray with olive oil spray. Cook for 1-2 mins each side or until lightly charred and cooked through. Transfer to a serving plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat with olive oil spray and remaining dough portions.
  5. Step 5

    Cook the asparagus on the grill for 2-3 mins or until lightly charred and tender.
  6. Step 6

    Spoon the ricotta mixture evenly over the flatbreads. Top with asparagus and sprinkle with the remaining fetta. Top with pickled onion to serve.
