Regardless of the location of purchase, this salad could not be simpler. And the beauty of its simplicity is that it showcases the unadulterated flavor of the asparagus by keeping it raw. Try this out alongside a simple piece of fish and/or as a first course of a meal. I think you'll find its nearly unequivocal pureness to be nothing short of special.
Shaved Asparagus Salad
Snap the heads off the ends of the spears and add them into a bowl. Shave asparagus into ribbons using a vegetable peeler and add to bowl. Toss with fresh lemon juice (0r orange could be lovely), extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt, and freshly ground pepper. Shave Pecorino Romano or Parmesan on top.
