Shaved Asparagus and Mint Salad

This delicious salad by meatballsandmilkshakes is a finalist in this week's Food 52 Best Spring Vegetable Recipe:
Shaved Asparagus and Mint Salad

1 handful toasted, crushed hazelnuts
1 tablespoon chopped mint
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons Sherry vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
parmesan or pecorino shavings
  1. Using a vegetable peeler, shave the asparagus lengthwise to create strips. Toss with the hazelnuts and mint.
  2. Wisk together lemon juice, vinegar, honey, and olive oil. Pour over asparagus and mix with salt and pepper to taste. Shave parmegiano or pecorino on top
So simple and yummy.
