DIRECTIONS

  • Trim the asparagus (keeping the darker green and less fibrous parts) and cut into 1-inch pieces.
  • Thinly slice the mushrooms.
  • Simmer the asparagus in 1/2 cup of water with a pinch of salt until it is tender (about 10-13 minutes).
  • While the asparagus is simmering, whisk the lemon juice, vinegar, Dijon mustard, and garlic together.
  • Gradually add the olive oil and then the black pepper.
  • Once you have drained the asparagus and let it cool, gently toss it with half of the dressing to coat it well.
  • Toss the remaining dressing with the basil and the mushrooms, and sprinkle the mixture over the asparagus.
  • Season to taste with salt, garnish with freshly grated Parmesan or Mizithra cheese, and serve.
