Description

This Shaved Asparagus Pesto Salad is perfect to enjoy as a main dish or simple side dish!

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch Fresh Asparagus
  • 3 cups Fresh Baby Arugula
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Zest
  • 1  Lemon, Juiced
  • ¼ cups Pesto
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Shaved Parmesan Cheese

Preparation

Trim ends of asparagus. Working with one piece at a time, lay asparagus flat on a cutting board and shave from the end of the stalk to the leaf part using a vegetable peeler. When asparagus gets too thin to shave, chop. Place asparagus in a large bowl. If you want to cook the asparagus instead of eating it raw, saute ribbons in a tablespoon of olive oil until crisp-tender, about 2–3 minutes, and then add to a bowl.

Add arugula to shaved asparagus. Add lemon zest, lemon juice, and pesto to salad. Toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and top with shaved Parmesan cheese.

Serve immediately. Enjoy!
