Shaved Asparagus Salad

By
Jane Bruce

Nothing says spring like raw, shaved asparagus. Dress it up with a bit of lemon juice, almonds, and olive oil for a simple dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 Teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3 Teaspoons olive oil
  • Zest of 1/4 lemon, sliced thinly
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons toasted sliced almonds
  • 1/4 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • Pepper, to taste

Directions

Shave the asparagus using a vegetable peeler from the end of the stalk to the tip. Place in a large mixing bowl. Toss with the lemon juice and 2 teaspoons of the olive oil. Set aside.

In a small frying pan, heat up the remaining olive oil, and fry the lemon zest and garlic until crisp, about 1 minute. Drain and pat dry.

Toss the fried lemon zest, garlic, and almonds with asparagus. Season with the salt and pepper, to taste, and serve immediately.
