Cold Asparagus with Prosciutto and Lemon
August 20, 2008

I know I'm the person who shared the recipe, but I wanted to share a few more things with you. First of all, if you like lemon, use more of the juice and zest. I know I usually do. Finally, if you want your asparagus super tender and you have the time and the patience, use a vegetable peeler and peel the asparagus (not the head) before you boil it. This especially works if your asparagus is very thick. If you are not sure where to cut off the bottom end of your asparagus, just grasp hold of the top and bottom of your stalk and bend it from the bottom until it breaks. The asparagus will break at the spot where the tough ends and the tender begins. Enjoy!
