Thinly slice vegetables using a vegetable peeler, toss them in a lemony vinaigrette, and top with salty cheese, like Parmesan, and nuts. This shaved asparagus salad showcases the best of early spring. This salad was featured as part of our Easter Dinner Dishes photo gallery.

                                                                  • Yes No 2 tbsp minced shallot

                                                                  • Yes No black pepper
                                                                  • Yes No 3 tbsp pine nut
                                                                  • Yes No 1 thick lb asparagus spears
                                                                  • Yes No 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
                                                                  • Yes No 1/2 cup packed parmesan cheese
                                                                  • Yes No 1 tbsp diced flat leaf parsley
                                                                  • Combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, vinegar, shallot, and a pinch each of salt and pepper in a small bowl. Let sit for 15 minutes.
                                                                  • Meanwhile, toast the pine nuts in a medium frying pan over medium heat, stirring often, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove to a small bowl to cool.
                                                                  • Using a vegetable peeler, thinly slice the asparagus lengthwise into strips and place in a large bowl. (If you have trouble peeling the final portion of an asparagus spear, prop the spear up on the flat wooden handle of a spatula or spoon. This will raise it just high enough to allow the peeler to move freely.)
                                                                  • Whisk the olive oil into the lemon-vinegar mixture in a thin and steady stream. Taste and season the dressing with salt and pepper as needed.
                                                                  • Add the cooled pine nuts, dressing, half of the Parmesan, and all of the parsley to the asparagus and toss with your hands to combine. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Let sit at least 10 minutes before serving. Serve topped with the remaining Parmesan cheese slices.
