This easy Shaved Asparagus Salad is so simple to prepare! Raw shaved asparagus and salty pecorino Romano cheese tossed with a simple lemon vinaigrette and finished with a sprinkle of Italian flat leaf parsley. Gluten free, so delicious and perfect for spring!
Last week was a big week here on the wee little island of Brigantine. Not only did we kick off the start of the summer season, it was also the year's first farmer's market! Booths we're bustling with bright red strawberries, radishes, spring onions, greens, lettuces, and lots and lots of asparagus.
This salad, in my humble opinion, is one of the tastiest ways to enjoy one of Spring's finest offerings. Shaved into paper thin strips, fresh, raw asparagus is surprisingly crisp, tender and sweet. Combined with the bright lemon juice and sharp, salty pecorino, it awakens the palate with something interesting and unconventional, yet still familiar. This is simple, seasonal food at it's best.
