Shaved Asparagus Salad

I never expected raw asparagus to taste so good!

What you'll need: 
(side dish for 4)
1 bunch asparagus
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan
dressing made of equal parts good olive oil and balsamic vinegar

Start by snapping off the woody ends of the asparagus and shaving the stalks with a vegetable peeler.  (If your younger brother is home from college, make him do this tedious part!)
Add the parmesan and dress the salad with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar and s+p.  Try and use the best quality olive oil possible and use just enough dressing to lightly coat the asparagus.
Toss and serve!
