Shaved Asparagus & Parmesan Salad


When asparagus is fresh, there’s no need to apply any heat.  Just trim off the woody portion and slice it thin for a salad that is bright, crunchy and ready in minutes.



1 bunch fresh asparagus, washed and trimmed

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

3 T. pine nuts or sliced almonds, toasted

4 Tablespoons golden raisins

1 oz fresh parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper to taste


Using a knife or vegetable peeler, thinly slice the asparagus lengthwise into ribbons.

In a bowl, combine olive oil and lemon juice.  Add the sliced asparagus, pine nuts and raisins and toss to coat.  Add salt and fresh black pepper to taste.

Use a vegetable peeler or cheese grater to top salad with fresh parmesan.  Can be served immediately or kept refrigerated for later in the day.
