Shaved Asparagus and Prosciutto Salad

Dorothy Curtis


I found this recipe in a magazine and we really liked it. The thicker asparagus does work so much better when shaving it into ribbons. I also added the lemon zest because it just added so much more flavor for us. If you don't want to use prosciutto I am sure some thin sliced ham would work or even some crisp bacon.
I could only shave down the asparagus so far and used my knife to cut into thin pieces.
