Seems like everyone is still on the kick on eating healthy this year. I have been trying to add more raw veggies into my diet. This asparagus salad has become a favorite in my house. Not only does it look beautiful, but it tastes amazing and refreshing. The salad goes great with a side of homemade soup. You can top also it with pretty much anything. I used shaved parmesan and toasted pine nuts. Enjoy!
10-15 large asparagus spears, trimmed
Pine nuts, toasted
Parmesan cheese, shaved for garnish
Salt & Pepper, to taste
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
Take 1 asparagus spear at a time, use a vegetable peeler to shave spears into long, thin ribbons. Add ribbons to a medium bowl. Next add pine nuts, olive oil, s&p and lemon juice. Toss together place on serving dish and top with shaved Parmesan cheese.
