This is my new favorite fresh summer salad! I found the idea on this site today and I will be making this a lot from now on. The best part about it is it’s so simple to make (and cost efficient) and the flavors just all come together so nicely.
All you have to do for this one is shave some raw asparagus with a vegetable peeler, chop up some onions and shave some parmesan and mix in with some lemon and olive oil. Here is the recipe from Eat More Drink More…
1 Bunch of Green Asparagus – The thicker the better for this recipe, it is easier for peeling.
1/4 Red Onion – Minced fine
Juice and Zest of half a Lemon.
3 T of Olive Oil – This is one of the instances where really good quality olive oil is important. Feel free to adjust the amount as necessary
Shaved Pecorino Cheese – to taste. (Parmesan would work well too.)
Salt & Pepper
1. Peel the asparagus with a sharp vegetable peeler. Hold the tough ends and shave towards the spear. Toss the tough ends of the asparagus.
2. Add the Onion, Lemon, Salt, Pepper, and Olive oil and mix thoroughly. Taste and adjust the amount of oil, lemon, salt and pepper as necessary.
3. Top with Shaved Pecorino Cheese.
