1 bunch Asparagus

Parmigiano Reggiano cheese

Extra virgin olive oil

1 clove garlic, crushed

Freshly squeezed lemon juice

Sea Salt

Wash and dry your asparagus and trim off the woody ends. With a very sharp vegetable peeler set over a bowl of ice water shave thin slices of asparagus. Once all of the asparagus have been shaved let them to sit in the ice water while you prepare your dressing.

In a small bowl combine olive oil, lemon juice, crushed garlic clove and a pinch of salt. Mix with a fork to emulsify and allow the garlic to infuse the oil for a minute or two before you toss everything together.

Remove the asparagus from the ice water bath and dry well. Toss the asparagus with the dressing and shave a bit of the Parmigiano Reggiano over the top. Salt and pepper to taste.  Enjoy!!!
