Shaved Asparagus Salad with Truffle Vinaigrette
Raw asparagus and mâche give this salad a crisp bite and a spring vibe. Along those lines, chef Vitaly Paley, of Paley's Place in Portland, Oregon, sometimes swaps thinly sliced raw artichoke hearts for the asparagus to deliver a similar mild, fresh crunch.
Tips: Truffle oil is best used at room temperature or slightly warm for the best flavor. Find it at well-stocked grocery stores and specialty markets.
To shave fresh truffles, use a truffle slicer, a mandoline or a vegetable peeler.
