Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking - Asparagus Salad

You're probably realizing by now that most Italian salads are very simple. Here's another one to add to your files - Asparagus Salad. Marcella says that when asparagus is at it's peak in Italy, the favorite way to serve it is boiled, as a salad. She says to serve this salad while it's still lukewarm.

You begin by prepping your asaragus. Wash it, cut off the bottom tough 1" or so of the stems, then peel the bottom part of the stalk. This leaves just the tender asparagus. You then boil the asparagus until tender, then drain. After it's well drained, you salt and pepper it, coat it generously with olive oil, and sprinkle on some red wine vinegar. Then you eat and enjoy!
