Shaved Raw Asparagus Salad w/ Arugula & Peas


What to do with all that beautiful Jersey asparagus this month?

I am happily eating it daily, but I know my time is running out, it is such a short season.

When you get fresh picked asparagus, you can eat it raw, and it tastes delicious.

Here, I took an idea from Food52 and shaved my asparagus into ribbons with a vegetable peeler (cut the tops in half and shave them too).


Toss with some spring peas and arugula.

The original recipe uses feta, but I used shaved Parmesan curls.

Squeeze some lemon juice over the salad components and sprinkle w/ Maldon salt and pepper.

Drizzle w/ good olive oil.

That's it folks.


Spring in the raw, at it's best.
