I'd never tried uncooked asparagus before, so I decided to try a shaved asparagus salad with prosciutto! I mean why not, it's basically floppy bacon, right?
You can try to slice the asparagus with a knife, but I used the slicer on my cheese grater to do this. Be VERY careful...that bugger is sharp. I also tried shaving the asparagus with a potato peeler which, if sharp, will work. Again, be very careful. Potato peelers also like fingers...mean.
Toss the shaved asparagus with lemon olive oil, a little bit of sea salt, parmesan cheese and prosciutto. That's it. No, really, that's it! It was quite delicious.
