I'm going to try this as well. I do love asparagus and have never eaten it raw, but this sounds wonderful. Thanks.
I love asparagus, so I'm going to have to try this. It sounds spectacular!

Just saw this prepared on Food Network -- looks SO delicious!
1 bunch pencil asparagus, tough bottom stems removed
1 small red onion, finely diced
1 cup coarsely grated aged pecorino
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
Extra-virgin olive oil
Cut the asparagus, including the tips into very thin slices, crosswise and place in a medium bowl. Add the red onion and pecorino and toss to combine. Dress with the vinegar, olive oil and salt and toss again. This salad should be fairly heavily dressed. The vinegar will sort of "cook" or tenderize the asparagus.
It is best to do this about an hour or so in advance to let the flavors "marry".
