Shaved Asparagus Salad

I love asparagus. Even as a kid asparagus was a favorite veggie on the dinner table, and we all looked forward to summer to enjoy it. In spirit of asparagus, I made this shaved asparagus salad. A bright, summery salad that is ready in no time, filled with rich pistachios, zippy lemon and grassy asparagus!


Choosing asparagus:

When choosing asparagus, choose thinner stalks. They'll be tender, sweet, grassy and full of flavor. Large, thick asparagus can be "woody" and stringy.


Preparing asparagus:

If you've ever wondered how to cook asparagus - let me ease your mind - don't cook it! You CAN eat asparagus raw, it's actually one of my favorite ways to enjoy this delicious vegetable.Raw asparagus is actually good for you, and a great way to include asparagus into your diet!


But in reality, asparagus is super versatile - it can be roasted, grilled, steamed, added to stir fries, or raw.


But don't take my word for it, try my raw shaved asparagus salad!
