  • 1 bunch asparagus washed and trimmed
  • cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • ¼ cup fresh tarragon chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh mint chopped
  • teaspoon sea salt optional
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese freshly grated


  • Using a swivel peeler, shave each asparagus stalk into thin pieces. You won't be able to peel each stalk perfectly, so chop whatever is left with a knife. This contributes a nice mix of textures.
  • Prepare the dressing by combining the olive oil, lemon juice, fresh tarragon and mint, sea salt, and grated parmesan in a large bowl. Whisk together.
  • Add the shaved asparagus to the bowl and mix until coated. Transfer to plates, serve immediately, and enjoy!


This is best served immediately but can keep in the fridge for a day or two.
