This salad is crunchy, cool, sour and salty. It’s great made right before you serve it, but its flavor also improves as it sits overnight. There’s no cooking required, so it’s the perfect side dish for a warm summer day picnic!

  • 1 pound of asparagus, peeled and sliced on an angle (about 1/4" thick)
  • 8 radishes sliced thinly
  • 3 oz. ricotta salata, grated
  • Zest and juice of 2 lemons
