Shaving raw asparagus transforms the veggie into noodle-like strips that are light and crisp. Combine with radishes, lemon and goat cheese for a bright, fresh, spring salad that’s big on asparagus flavor.



Remove woody ends from asparagus. Using a vegetable peeler, shave asparagus lengthwise. (You can use the trimmings to make soup or stock). Cut radishes into quarters and mix with asparagus in a bowl.

Add lemon juice, zest, vinegar, oil, marjoram, salt and pepper to a jar. Twist the lid on tight and shake well.

Pile asparagus and radishes on a salad plate, much like pasta. Drizzle some of the dressing, to your taste, over the top. Scatter with goat cheese and serve with a nice crusty bread.
