Ingredients

  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation

1. Place the asparagus flat on a cutting board, and using a vegetable peeler, shave the asparagus into thin ribbons. Hold down the asparagus with your hand on the woody end and start shaving about 1 inch from the bottom to avoid the fibrous section.

2. Place the shaved asparagus in a bowl and top with the almonds and parmesan cheese.

3. In a small bowl, whisk to combine the olive oil, lemon juice and salt. Drizzle on top of the asparagus and toss to thoroughly combine all the ingredients.
