Shaved asparagus with bacon vinaigrette is a hearty side dish made with tender, crisp asparagus sections and a warm bacon dressing. It’s a different, delicious way to use this spring seasonal vegetable.
Spring has officially sprung, and I’m using that fact as justification for the upcoming boost in my asparagus consumption. Not that I need any coaxing to eat asparagus with how simple it is to make on the stovetop or enjoy in a savory breakfast, but after trying it raw in this shaved asparagus with bacon vinaigrette recipe, I’m hooked even more on its versatility. Thinly-shaved (really – peeled using a vegetable peeler) asparagus lets its bright, springy flavor shine through and yields a crispness that isn’t stringy or too-chewy at all.
