Whether steamed, grilled or blanched, fresh asparagus packs a flavorful punch as a side dish. But it doesn’t always have to be cooked. Try it out in all its raw beauty in this delicious shaved salad.

Ingredients

1/4
cup lemon juice
1
tablespoon Dijon mustard
2
teaspoons olive oil
1/4
teaspoon salt
3/4
teaspoon pepper
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1
lb thick-stemmed asparagus spears, bottom 2 inches removed, shaved into thin strips (4 cups)
1
small leek, white part only, cut into two 2-inch lengths, then cut into very thin matchstick pieces
3
slices gluten-free prosciutto (from 3-oz package), cut into very thin strips
1
oz Parmesan cheese, shaved into thin strips

Directions

  • 1 In large bowl, beat lemon juice, mustard, oil, salt, pepper and garlic with whisk.
  • 2 Add asparagus and leek; toss to coat. Divide mixture among 6 serving plates; top with the prosciutto and cheese strips.
Tips  

Choosing thicker asparagus stalks for this recipe makes them easier to peel and will give you prettier strips.

Leeks can store a lot of sand within their layers, making them difficult to clean before cutting. Instead, cut them as called for in your recipe, then give them a bath in a bowl of cold water. Agitate them a couple of times, then lift them out, leaving the sand behind.
