Yum! Asparagus and Zuchinni Crudi

Taken from one of my favorite chef's recipe book "Giada'Kitchen"

A really yummy summer salad. I know it's not summer yet but the asparagus is so good right now and "crudi" means raw and the freshness of raw vegetables is a welcomed accompaniment to the pasta dish I  am preparing tonight with oven baked pork chops. I am trying to incorporate more fresh vegetables into my meals and this is one of my favorites. Look at those pretty curled zuchinni strips.. Sliced with a peeler.. to resemble thin pale noodles..I substituted a 3 year aged cheddar for the 1 oz Pecorino Romano Cheese called for.
Bon Appetite!

4 -6servings
2 medium zuchinni trimmed
4-6 stems of asparagus
