This is a very simple and delicious salad!  And one of our favorites


1 pound asparagus

4 Tablespoons of chopped herbs of your choice-we like cilantro or basil

Gremolata infused olive oil-as needed

Salt and Pepper to taste


First, get a pot of water boiling.

Second, prepare an ice water bath big enough to hold all the asparagus to quickly cool and stop the cooking process.

Using a potato/carrot peeler, shave the asparagus all the way down to thin ribbons

place all shaved asparagus in a colander in the sink.  Pour all boiling water over the asparagus, strain, then submerge asparagus in an ice water bath to immediately stop the cooking.

Using paper towels, drain the asparagus and pat dry. Place all asparagus in a mixing bowl with chopped herbs and drizzle salad with a generous portion of Gremolata Olive Oil/  Salt and pepper to taste and serve!
