Shaved asparagus salad

A crunchy raw salad is an easy way to get a super-healthy asparagus hit. I love the visual simplicity of this dish, it’s one of those recipes you can keep changing and creating to go with any meal. A side dish for lunch or dinner, sprinkled with your favourite fresh herbs or toasted nuts; or served alongside grilled seafood, meat or vegetables.
- Use a peeler to shave the asparagus, starting at the tip and peeling towards the woody base. Discard the woody base.
- Gently place shaved asparagus in a salad bowl.
- Dress with mesclun leaves then arrange sliced feta on top.
- Pour over olive oil and vinegar just before serving, season with salt and pepper to taste.
