Directions

Remove and chop the zest from the orange and add it to a large nonreactive bowl. Add the asparagus and cheese and toss together. Peel the orange and cut segments from the membrane. Add the segments to the bowl with the asparagus.

Squeeze the juice from the orange membrane into a small bowl and add the chives and white wine vinegar. Whisk in the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add the dressing to the asparagus and let sit until the asparagus is slightly wilted, about 5 minutes. Toss in the hazelnuts and serve.

    Love this time of year when asparagus is less expensive and can try a new dish without breaking the bank. This is an excellent salad. Another time I woul reduce the Romano cheese to about half. The orange and the juice from the orange pears well with the cheese. This will be a regular for me.

    OMG!! I have almost everything to make this with. I'll have to substitute fresh parmigiana for the Romano and dry roasted peanuts, but everything else I have. Making it for dinner today and will let ya all know how it turned out.

    Okay, made it for dinner and it was very good. I've never had asparagus raw before and was skeptical about it. I really thought it would be bitter but not at all. The only thing I would do differently is reduce the white wine vinegar a little and use a larger orange. The citrus flavor stood out nicely with the asparagus, but the vinegar was a little too strong for my liking. Wish I had the Romano cheese instead of the Parmesan, but it was still very good. I'll definitely make this one again. It was very quick to make with no fuss at all and virtually no dishes to clean up afterwards. I served it with pork cutlets.

    Michael, you're my favorite chef...I watch all your shows!
