Asparagus often makes wine taste vegetal. To counter that, chef Mark Ladner of Manhattan's Del Posto mixes shaved spears with a supremely wine-friendly ingredient: parmesan.

Ingredients

  • 2 pound(s) large asparagus
  • 1 cup(s) coarsely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, 3 ounces
  • 3 tablespoon(s) fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon(s) warm water
  • 1/4 cup(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

  • 1. Using a vegetable peeler, shave the asparagus into long, thin strips and transfer to a large bowl.
  • 2. In a small bowl, mix the Parmigiano-Reggiano with the lemon juice, water and olive oil. Add to the asparagus and toss to coat. Season the salad with salt and pepper and serve at once.
