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.
Asparagus and Zuchinni Crudi
2 medium zuchinni trimmed
4-6 stems of asparagus
1/4 cup olive oil
2 T fresh lemon juice
dash of salt
fresh ground pepper
1 ounce Percorno Romano Cheese.
In small bowl combine olive oil, lemon juice,salt & pepper. Mix well. then drizzle over the vegetables. toss to coat. Use the veetable peeler to shave the cheese over the salad & serve immediately
