Zucchini and Asparagus Crudi

>> Tuesday, October 28, 2008

I know you read that title and thought "I don't know about this..." Let me tell you something. I DO. I know that this is amazing and that's because I ate it last night, at my home, which I am now referring to as "The Restaurant," because the meals I ate eat there surpass restaurant quality.

Anyways, Leah made me this delightful salad or crudi.

It's as simple as it is delicious.

Ingredients (for 2-4 servings)

  • 1 large zucchini

  • 1 bundle of asparagus

  • 1 lemon

  • Shredded Parmesan

  • Olive Oil

  • Salt

  • Pepper

Directions (total time: 20 minutes)

To get your zucchini in that fancy shape couldn't be easier. Simply take a peeler and start shaving off layers and layers of zucchini. Once you've peeled the desired amount of zucchini move on to the asparagus.

Break off the ends of the asparagus. Do this by grabbing the asparagus at the middle and end and bending so the pressure causes it to break. Then run your knife down the middle of the asparagus splitting it.

Place the zucchini and asparagus in a bowl and toss lightly with some olive oil (shouldn't take a lot). Then squeeze half a lemon (to get the most juice, roll the lemon first, then when squeezing hold the lemon upright so no seeds get in the mixture) and add some Parmesan.

Plate your delicious salad and top off with some more Parmesan!

This dish could not be healthier and I've never understood the appeal of being a vegetarian but after that meal, I can understand why.
