A simple, effortless spring salad that features fresh asparagus and zesty lemon pepper is a must for every home cook, and this one lets the ingredients take center stage. When you’re shopping for asparagus, note that thick spears will be much easier to work with, so opt for those if possible.


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced shallot (from 1 small shallot)

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sherry vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 pinch kosher salt

  • 3/4 teaspoon Simply Organic Lemon Pepper

  • 1 pound large asparagus spears, tough bottoms removed

  • 1/2 cup packed shaved Parmesan cheese (about 1.5 ounces), plus more to top


    1. In a small bowl, whisk together the shallot, lemon juice, sherry vinegar, olive oil, salt and lemon pepper. Set aside.

    2. Using a vegetable peeler, shave the asparagus lengthwise into thin strips and place in a medium bowl.

    3. Pour vinaigrette over shaved asparagus and stir to coat. Taste and season with additional salt and lemon pepper, as desired.

    4. Fold in Parmesan cheese.

    5. Serve topped with additional shaved Parmesan and a sprinkling of lemon pepper.
