Warm Asparagus Salad

Serves: 4 | prep Time 10 minutes | Cook time 5 Minutes

  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 3 TBsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 TBsp minced garlic
  • black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shaved Parmesan
  • Juice of 1 lemon

Trim, peel, and cut asparagus into 1 1/2 to 2 inch long diagonal pieces.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and fill a large bowl with ice water.

Add the asparagus to the boiling water and cook until just tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain and transfer to the ice water. Once cooled, drain and pat dry and add to a medium bowl.

Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat, add the walnuts and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until just golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour mixture over the asparagus and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

To serve, transfer asparagus to a platter and scatter Parmesan on top. Drizzle with lemon juice and serve immediately.
