This Spring Arugula + Shaved Asparagus Salad is so fresh and the perfect little salad to make any night of the week. Tossed in a lemon vinaigrette and topped with parmesan shavings. I love the shaved asparagus in here, it just lands so nicely and keeps you coming back for more. We make a lemon vinaigrette but you could simply squeeze fresh lemon juice and drizzle extra virgin olive oil for a lovely dressing as well. Toasted pine nuts are also a nice addition if you have some on hand.


1 bunch of asparagus shaved 

2-3 handfuls of fresh arugula

1 lemon juiced

1/4 cup EVOO

1 tsp brown mustard

1 clove garlic chopped or grated

S + P

Parmesan shaved


Trim the ends off your asparagus and shave lengthwise down the stalk. Place on a sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil, and toss with s+p. Broil a few minutes until it just starts to turn brown on the tips. Remove and let cool.

Add your arugula to a bowl, and sprinkle with sea salt.

Grab a small bowl or jar to add the lemon juice, EVOO, s=p, and mustard. Mix well.

Once the asparagus has cooled place on the arugula and pour dressing over, toss well. Top with your shaved parmesan.
