Ingredients

12 large asparagus spears (about 1 lb.), trimmed and peeled

Finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano to taste

Meyer lemon juice to taste

Good quality olive oil to taste

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

Working with 1 asparagus spear at a time, use a vegetable peeler to shave spears into long, thin shavings. Transfer to a medium bowl with iced water. Allow the shaved asparagus to sit in the iced water for 5 minutes. Drain, place in a salad spinner and gently spin dry.  Place the dried asparagus strips in a medium size bowl and dress with kosher salt, lemon juice and olive oil. Divide asparagus salad among plates. Finely grate Parmigiano Reggiano over each plate. 

Serve at once.
