Shaved Fennel and Asparagus Salad

Shaved Fennel, asparagus, onion salad

All the restaurants are doing it, you should too - shave. I noticed shaved Brussels sprout, shaved fennel, shaved Parmesan Regianno, shaved endives, shaved 'insert your favorite vegetable.' Shaving vegetables yield an elegant presentation.

I really love the first "shave" of fennel, the strong aroma of licorice wakes me up. I opted for a shaved theme salad - fennel, onion, asparagus, and Parmesan. I used a mandolin for the fennel and onions and a vegetable peeler for the asparagus and Parmesan.

No waste in Bonnibella's house, I used the fennel flowers in my vinaigrette.

that looks lovely, great photos! I love shaved fennel too, it's much more interesting than say, celery...
