Shaving Asparagus  Shaved Asparagus Salad

Watch as A&M tackle the key technique to this week's spring vegetable winner: Shaved Asparagus and Mint Salad. Tedious? A tad -- but less so (we promise!) if you watch this video. 

This week's video was once again shot and edited by filmmaker Elena Parker.

Thanks for that! I too had never heard of shaving asparagus and will look forward to making your salad.

I love watching you two in the kitchen and am loving shaved asparagus this season. So fresh! I leave the ends on for a handle and begin shaving where the color deepens.

Could you cut the spears in half and then use a mandoline to slice them?

I have never heard of shaved asparagus and I'm completely intrigued. I have some fresh spears just waiting in the fridge to be prepared within the next couple of days - so this recipe is a must. Thanks for the tip!

I shave them all the time into all of my green salads. Just adds a dimension to the salad and often people will not recognize the flavour right away.

I love those shaved pieces of asparagus - so beautiful. I might try this soon since my daughter is a major fan of asparagus - she'd probably like the different texture for a change.

Thanks so much! I tried to shave asparagus the other day & it was, frankly, a disaster. Maybe next time I'll do a little better...
