raw shaved asparagus with cucumber, radishes and burrata

I’ve been going crazy over asparagus season for the last couple of days. One of my favorite creations of late is this raw shaved green asparagus with cucumber, radishes and burrata with a lemony spring herb vinaigrette. Try it, it’s grand!

I think green asparagus is perfect for salads and really delish raw. Use a potato peeler and shave the asparagus in thin slices. It’s so delicate and looks so nice! It’s a perfect starter, wonderful light and breezy, like a summer day. A perfect companion for your shaved asparagus salad is a glass of Silvaner or Sauvignon Blanc!
