Raw Asparagus Salad
This has to be my favorite preparation of asparagus, raw or cooked. Fresh and light, it is great paired with anything from the grill or simply by itself.
What you need:
1 bunch of asaparagus
1/4 red onion
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp fresh cracked pepper
1 tsp sea salt
4-5 fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan
Wash asparagus and remove ends where they naturally break. Slice very thin and then finely chop. Set aside in medium bowl. Chop onion finely and place in bowl with asparagus.
Pour olive oil and red wine vinegar over asparagus and onion and stir until coated. Add fresh ground pepper and sea salt.
Chop the basil and add to bowl.
Grate the parmesan and set aside until ready to serve. Just before serving, add your parmesan and mix. Enjoy!
