Raw Asparagus Salad with Parmesan Shavings

Gorgeous, raw asparagus salad for springtime. Veganize with your favorite veg-cheese instead of parm!

12 large asparagus spears (about 1 pound), trimmed and peeled

1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan plus a piece for shaving

1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Himalayan pink salt and freshly ground black pepper


Working with 1 asparagus spear at a time, use a vegetable peeler to shave spears into long, thin shavings. Transfer to a medium bowl (the tips will snap off as spears get thinner; add to bowl). Combine grated Parmesan and lemon juice in a small bowl and slowly whisk in oil until well blended. Season vinaigrette generously with salt and pepper. Drizzle vinaigrette over shaved asparagus and toss to coat. Divide asparagus salad among plates. Use peeler to shave more Parmesan over salad. 4 servings.

Per Bon Appetit: Shaving asparagus with a vegetable peeler transforms the texture of a raw stalk into silky strips. Works well with all kinds of vegetables, from carrots to zucchini.
