Asparagus and Zucchini Crudi

In Italian, the word "crudo" refers to "raw" - you'll often see it in reference to seafood, or beef carpaccio. For this recipe, I prepared vegetables in the same way - very similar to a carpaccio, in fact - with thin slices, a bright vinaigrette, and shaved Pecorino. 

This is a fabulous spring and summer dish that will brighten up just about any meal. It's perfect for Easter, luncheons, or brunches to balance out heavier dishes. 

Even better? You can prep this ahead of time. Marinate the veggies, then cover them in the fridge for a day - it actually gets better the longer it can marinate. When it's time to serve, shave the cheese on top, and you have the easiest springtime side dish ever.
