Take a look at this lovely woven asparagus salad from Food Mayhem — what a simple yet elegant presentation for spring-fresh asparagus. This is one of the simplest ways to serve asparagus, despite its fancy presentation. It's just sliced with a mandoline and then layered with shaved Parmesan, olive oil, and salt and pepper. So simple, so easy, and so fresh.
We really like how this enhances the tactile experience of eating asparagus. This doesn't look like a dish to be eaten with a fork, but one to untangle with your fingers, unthreading the woven strands of asparagus. It makes us think about the ways in which just arranging the food on a plate can change or enhance the experience of eating. Just looking at this makes us want to go and find a bunch of asparagus right now!
